Being classified as a sex offender means having to comply with special laws and regulations. These laws and regulations are meant to help protect the public, but some people say that they actually place unnecessary restrictions on sex offenders. Some sex offenders in North Carolina will now have to comply with a new law that places some harsh restrictions on where they can go.
This new law is coming into the picture while an older law, which is the one that went into effect in 2009, is moving through the court system. It was found to be unconstitutional; however, the state is appealing that ruling. In the meantime, the new law provides conditions that are similar to that law.
