BILL NUMBER:S1020 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the correction law, the penal law and the executive law, in relation to prohibiting level three sex offenders from living in college housing PURPOSE: This bill is intended to protect college students from dangerous sex offenders who may be residing in college dormitories with them. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 168-f of the correction Law is amended to prohibit level 3 sex offenders from residing in student housing on the campus of any institution of higher education. Section 168-t of the correction Law is amended to make it a crime for any sex offender to violate such prohibition. Section 65.10 of the Penal law makes the same prohibition on level 3 sex offenders as a condition of probation. Section 259-c of the Executive law is amended to make the same prohibition as a condition of parole for level 3 sex offenders. JUSTIFICATION: Students in college housing generally live in very close quarters, keep different hours and are often living on their own for the first time in their lives. In many respects, their safety is compromised when they share living space with people they do not know anything about.
