CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) – Halloween is just around the corner, and parents may be wondering what laws are in effect in order to keep your kids safe when it comes to sex offenders.
According to Missouri Revised Statute 2010: Law requires registered sex offenders to stay inside their homes between the hours of 5 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. with all exterior lighting turned off.
They must also post signs on their door stating that no candy will be available to trick-or-treaters at their home.
However, not all registered Missouri sex offenders are required to follow this law. (Source)
