Conway Asks Supreme Court to Rule on Sex Offender Law

Frankfort, KY – Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to suspend a recent ruling by the Commonwealth's Supreme Court loosening restrictions on where convicted sex offenders may live. Kentucky's high court recently denied Conway's request to suspend its own ruling while he appeals to the federal supreme court.

The state court ruled October 1st that Kentucky's sex offender law, passed in 2006, was unconstitutional because it also applied to sex offenders who were convicted before the law was on the books. Conway has until December 30th to file a motion seeking the federal court's review, a move he says he'll do.
