Does anyone know the laws regarding sex offenders living near schools? My family and I are moving to LA and upon researching a home I was startled to find a registered sex offender (crime against a child) living within 1000 feet of the school.

The problem with these laws is that there really are very few homes that are not near a school, park, or area where children congregate. The sex offenders are banned from most housing, cannot find some stability, and become more likely to reoffend. Wouldn't your prefer a sex offender who has a stable home to come back to after a day at work to one who is roaming the streets because the law prohibits her/him from living somewhere (yes there are female sex offenders too).

Don't be too focused on that. People move around a lot.
