Attorney General Opinion

Click here for twelve page document answers the following questions.

March 31, 2005
Dear Senator Crain:
This office has received your request for an official Attorney General Opinion in which you ask, in effect, the following questions:

1. Are the residency restrictions of the Sex Offenders Registration Act in 57 O.S. Supp.2004, § 590, unconstitutionally vague?

2. Do the Sex Offenders Registration Act's residency restrictions prohibit a registered sex offender from residing within a 2,000-foot radius of a school or educational institution if he or she lived there prior to being convicted of a crime for which registration is required?

3. If the answer to Question 2 is yes, how may the residency restriction be enforced?

4. Would any of the answers change if the sex offender moved into the residence and/or was convicted before the effective date of Section 590 of Title 57 (November 1, 2003)?
