Jeremy, I’d rather NOT have a statewide law of general application on this subject, and just let any living restrictions be handled on a case-by-case basis through the parole department (for offenders released from prison early) and the probation department (for offenders who are fully done with the incarceration portion of their sentence, or were never sent to prison at all).

If any law is needed, it would simply be one authorizing parole and probation officers to forbid offenders from living (and working?) too close to where their victim lives (and works?). Require that such a restriction be well-founded on the facts and circumstances of the case and the people involved.
