I am looking for some clarification on residence restrictions for sex offenders. Per an article in the Dallas Morning News on Sunday, Texas law does not permit sex offenders whose victim was a child to live within 500 feet of a child friendly area, such as a school, park, or day care. Is this correct?

Additionally, it is my understanding that a sex offenders are required to register with the police department of the city in which they reside. Is this correct?

Thank you for the assistance.

Sex offenders who are on parole are typically not allowed to reside within 500 of certain locations such as you described while they are on parole and are required to register with their local police department. Adjudicated offenders who are placed on probation are typically not allowed to reside within 1000 of these locations and must also register with the local police. The parole board or adjudicating judge has some discretion in requiring additional conditions if they deem them appropriate. While registration requirements extend, in most cases, past the term of parole or probation, the stipulation restricting residency terminates upon the completion of their parole or probation. Please let me know if you have any additional question.

Captian Stevens,

Thank you for the reply. I do have an additional question.

Are sex offenders whose victim was a child subject to the residency restrictions during the period of time in which they are registered with the state and local police as sex offenders, even if the parole or probation period has expired?

Thanks again.

No. At the time the person is no longer under the parole or probation process, they do not have to adhere to any residency restrictions. The age of the victim has no impact on this.
