BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Local sex offenders said they are fed up with yet another round of proposed restrictions on where they can live.
The ordinance being drafted by the Kern County Board of Supervisors would enhance Jessica’s Law, passed in 2006, and would limit newly paroled sex offenders from living near school bus stops, churches, day care facilities, and other places where children gather. The ordinance would apply to all offenders regardless of whether they committed crimes against children.
