Sex Offenders and Visitation

A story out of Northern New York unveils a new wrinkle to the State's classification system for sexual offenders. Child's father lives in an apartment. Level 3 (most likely to repeat/most serious offense) offender also lives in building. St. Lawrence County Family Court has now ruled that father can't have visitation with the five year old child at his home, because of the proximity to the registered offender. It will be interesting to see if this is appealed or if any further developments occur on this topic.

You do find the most fascinating articles!
Although I am of course all for children being protected, this is frightening. I feel it will impact only those who are poor and thence have no resources or extremely poor resources for living elsewhere.
