Sex offenders are prohibited from living near schools, playgrounds and any other place where children dwell. But are sex offenders prohibited from living next door to their victims? The answer will shock you, and the answer is no.
There is no law that prevents sex offenders from living next door to their victims. But there are some options victims can take to become a bit safer.
In North Carolina victims of a serious sex offense case can obtain a lifetime restraining order on their assaulters. But these types of restraining orders are hard to get and requires certain circumstances.
Thankfully law makers are working hard to close this loophole and have to get sex offenders far away from their victims.
