Officers Monitor Sex Offenders on Halloween
MONTGOMERY COUNTY -- Fighting back to keep your kids far away from sex offenders on Halloween night.
Under state law, registered sex offenders are allowed to pass out candy to your children on Halloween. But parole officers can restrict dangerous offenders from participating in trick-or-treat.
More than a thousand registered sex offenders live in Montgomery County. The sheriff's office says the offenders who are convicted of sex crimes against juveniles are of especially great concern to the cops on Halloween, when little kids could potentially be knocking at their door.
"We're going to be making sure they're home, doors are locked and they're not passing out candy," said Mont. Co. Sgt. Julie Stephens.
The sheriff's office does sex offender home checks every day, but one Halloween they're focusing on the top 38 most dangerous. Convicts found guilty of charges like child pornography, rape, and gross sexual imposition of a minor.
Detective Isaiah Keller and Parole Officer Jason Perez didn't have any problems on their patrol until it got dark. Their last stop was an offender convicted of raping a juvenile. The light on his front porch was on and door wide open, which is potentially a major violation of his parole. They questioned him and his wife for nearly 30 minutes, and they went door-to-door to check their story with neighbors.
"He's living there with his wife. They assured us that they haven't passed out any candy. So we checked with the neighbors. The neighbors said no they haven't so that was a relief to us," Det. Keller said.
