Conway Wants US Supreme Court to Hear KY Case

Frankfort, KY – Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway says he will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review a state Supreme Court ruling that loosened restrictions on where convicted sex offenders can live. Lawmakers passed a law in 2006 barring sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of schools, daycare centers, and other places where children congregate. The state Supreme Court called the law unconstitutional because it applied retroactively to sex offenders convicted before the restrictions were imposed.
