Rep. Fran Amos (R-Waterford) wrote the bill. It would prevent registered sex offenders from keeping their porch lights on, or handing out candy on October 31 or any day deemed Halloween by local governments.
D/Sgt. Kyle McPhee says there are an estimated 1,100 registered sex offenders in the tri-county area. Currently, registered sex offenders are allowed to put up lights and hand out candy as long as they do not entice the children for immoral purposes.
