GET TOUGH WHEN PERVS HIDE – POL

City Councilman Eric Gioia has begun pushing for tougher punishments for sex offenders who hide their addresses from law enforcement.  Under the state Megan’s Law, a sex offender is charged with a misdemeanor the first time he or she fails to notify officials of a current address.  The charge jumps to a felony only for a second violation.  Gioia argues that it should be one strike and you’re out.
