Update on Iowa Sex Offender Residency Rules

The New York Times has a story that describes the consequences of Iowa's sex offender residency rules:

The men have flocked to . . . rural motels and trailer parks because no one else will, or can, have them. A new state law barring those convicted of sex crimes involving children from living within 2,000 feet of a school or day care center has brought unintended and disturbing consequences. It has rendered some offenders homeless and left others sleeping in cars or in the cabs of their trucks.

I've previously posted on the Iowa regulations here.
