Reply To: Minnesota sex offenders challenge residency restrictions


I live in Minnesota. Although I was not given a level, I do face the same restrictions as any other sex offender in the state. It’s to the point of needing to move out of the community and onto county land, just to avoid all the extra-judicial restrictions in the various communities have implemented within their town limits. Some counties are notoriously harsh on sex offenders, requiring frequent meetings with Probation/Parole officers, drug testing, and extensive paperwork with every meeting, far beyond what the state requires (even after 5 years since conviction). It’s to the point in which entire swaths of the state are simply not worth trying to live in. I can’t imagine how much harder people have it in states in the South.

Very frustrated.
