Criminal Law Update: Sex Offender Restrictions

The North Carolina General Assembly passed session law 2014-21 this week and amended the laws governing residential restrictions on Sex Offenders.

Under this amendment of N.C.G.S. § 14-208.16(b), the term child care center was expanded to specifically include “Boys and Girls Clubs of America” organizations. Thus, registered sex offenders are now explicitly precluded from residing within 1000 feet of such organizations.

However, those sex offenders who have already established residences within 1000 feet of such organizations prior to this amendment are grand-fathered in and the law will not apply.

You can read this law in full here: http://www.ncleg.net/EnactedLegislation/SessionLaws/PDF/2013-2014/SL2014-21.pdf.
