Attorney General Calls for Supreme Court Review
By Angela Hatton
Frankfort, KY – Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway has filed a motion with the U.S. Supreme Court asking it to review a ruling by the Supreme Court in Kentucky. The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled in October that the state's residency restrictions for sex offenders are unconstitutional. The measures, passed in 2006, bar sex offenders from living within a thousand feet of a school. The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled the law could not be applied retroactively. The Attorney General's Office had requested the ruling not go into effect until after the U.S. Supreme Court has time to review the motion. The lower court denied the request.
