BILL NUMBER:S7503 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the correction law, in relation to prohibiting sex offenders from residing in community homes PURPOSE AND JUSTIFICATION: This bill would prohibit sex offenders, who are required to be registered pursuant to the Corrections Law, from residing in a community residence. The residents of our community resi- dences with mental disabilities are some of the most vulnerable individ- uals in our state. Although the community residences provide oversight and supervision in these homes, it is inappropriate that registered sex offenders, who have been determined to have committed sex crimes, should be placed in close and continual proximity to reside with these most vulnerable individuals who deserve the best care and protection that we can provide. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 - adds a new section 168-ee to the Corrections Law which provides that any sex offender registered pursuant to Article 6-C of the Corrections Law shall be prohibited from residing in a community residence, which, for the purposes of this section, is defined as any facility operated by or subject to licensure by the Office of Mental Health or the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities which provides a supervised residence or residential respite services for individuals with mental disabilities. Section 2 - of the bill provides for an immediate effective date.
