No Tricks, No Treats, No Kids for Sex Offenders in New Jersey

From MSNBC.com: Newark: (AP): "New Jersey sex offenders who face supervision under Megan’s Law will be confined to their homes on Halloween and will be under orders not to answer the door when trick-or-treaters come calling.  It will be the first time sex offenders in New Jersey will be subject to a curfew.

The rules were issued by the state Parole Board in a recent letter to the 2,200 offenders it supervises.

The offenders must be indoors by 7 p.m. Monday and cannot answer their door when trick-or-treaters knock. They cannot attend parties where there are children, and cannot take any children, including their own, out in search of treats."  Story... [Mark Godsey]
