CT: Windsor Locks to vote on repealing sex offender proximity ordinance

[ – 3/15/19]

Nearly a year after an advocacy group and an anonymous resident filed a lawsuit against the town over an ordinance barring sex offenders from designated public places, voters will have the option Tuesday to repeal that ordinance at a town meeting.

The town meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall.

The ordinance, enacted over 10 years ago, prohibits those on the sex offender registry from “child safety zones,” which include local parks, public schools, the library, the Town Hall gymnasium, and the senior center. There is an exception for voting at polling places in any of those locations, though sex offenders must leave the premises immediately after voting.

Connecticut for One Standard of Justice, a nonprofit that advocates for the rights of accused and convicted sex offenders, has said the ordinance violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments.
