Minnesota Senate sends Gov. Dayton bill that would close sex offender loophole

Published 02/23/2012

The Minnesota Senate has sent Gov. Mark Dayton a bill to close a loophole in state sex offender law in response to the upcoming release of a convicted child molester into a halfway house. Current state law requires community notification when a sex offender moves into a community, but not if that person moves into a halfway house. The bill widens the notification requirement to cover any "residence facility."
