SEX OFFENDERS FACE TIGHTER RULES (Suffolk plans law that would further limit locations where registered offenders can reside, or loiter)

On the eve of Suffolk County lawmakers voting on yet another bill to restrict sex offenders, political and community leaders across Long Island acknowledged the limitations of such restrictions while others defended the rules.  The measure, which Suffolk legislators are expected to pass unanimously today, would prohibit registered Level 2 and 3 sex offenders from loitering within 100 feet of playgrounds, pools, arcades, youth centers and day care facilities.
