Update to the Sex Offenders File

There is hope yet for those of us who don't want convicted Sex Offenders living in our neighborhood.

A small town in Texas has recently passed a law that effectively makes it illegal for convicted Sex Offenders to live in their city. The law states that convicted Sex Offenders cannot live within one thousand feet of any place where children gather. As the town is very small, the new law applies to every home in town but one.

And if that's not enough to restore your faith in the criminal justice system, consider McNeil Island in Washington state, currently housing 225 of Washington's most violent sexual predators. The catch: these convicted Sex Offenders can be kept on this island for "treatment" even after their sentence has been served.

So don't give up hope just yet. Instead stand up, speak up, and take action. We can only change these laws if we act together.

Take action today!
