State bars sex offenders from Halloween activities

POSTED: October 31, 2012 1:30 p.m.

ATLANTA — State officials say sex offenders on parole in Georgia face several restrictions aimed at keeping them from using Halloween to commit crimes.

Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles officials say that sex offenders under parole supervision will not be allowed to decorate the outside of their homes or have outside lights turned on.

Jay Lacienski, the agency's field operations director, says the state's sex offenders have been "strictly directed" not to do anything to entice children to their homes.

State officials say they plan to check up on sex offenders on Halloween and also conduct random searches of residences.

Officials said that in some cases, sex offenders on parole are being directed to attend programs at specified locations during the evening hours Wednesday when children are trick-or-treating.
