A bill requiring sex offenders to register multiple residences has passed the New York state Senate. The bill’s sponsor is from the Hudson Valley.
Republican state Senator John Bonacic says current law requires sex offenders to register their primary residences.
“Many of these sexual predators have been living not at their primary, but at their so-called secondary [residence], unbeknownst to the neighborhood, unbeknownst to schools, unbeknownst to child care centers,” says Bonacic. “So we’re plugging that loophole.”
