Earlier this week, the “Carson City Council unanimously passed an urgency ordinance to allow only one sex offender per dwelling.”
Jessica’s Law, allows up to “12 sex offenders to live in one dwelling at least 2,000 feet from parks and schools.” Some community members have told officials that this is too close to their homes.
Sergio and Reina Larranaga bring their children to Dominguez Park, which is a centerpiece of their community. The park rests on the edge of Carson and Long Beach. However, less than a mile away, on Harrison Street, sits a duplex occupied by 12 sex offenders.
Sergio Larranga expressed his concerns about sex offenders living in his neighborhood:
“Don’t come into the neighborhood. Don’t shop here, don’t walk through here, don’t catch the bus right here … catch it somewhere else.”
