RESTRICTIONS FOR SEX OFFENDERS (Day care center suspension for employing Level Two abuser shows there’s still problems legally in reintroducing convicts back to society)

The recent suspension of a Westbury day care center over its employment of 51 year old Emmett Charles, a convicted sex offender, highlights the question of how long such offenders can be restricted from working in jobs where there are children. According to authorities, Charles, employed as a handyman at Play Play Play before its license was suspended by the state this month, committed no crime in taking a job where he had contact with youngsters. Instead, they say, it fell to the center's employer to screen employees.
