UGUSTA, Maine —
A proposal at the Maine State House would add living restrictions to Maine’s sex offender law.
The bill would ban a convicted sex offender from living in a multiunit building that shares an entrance with a unit occupied by a minor.
Specifically, a sex offender who committed a crime against someone under the age of 14 would be banned from living in a multiunit building with a shared entrance with a person under 18.
Maine law requires a sex offender who committed an offense against a child under the age of 14 to not have any contact with any child under 14.
