Reply To: Sixth Circuit rejects Michigan residency & premises restrictions


Matt, I’m in Indiana as well and I feel we have it better than a lot of states. We have a statewide range restriction of 1000 feet from schools, day cares, parks, and other places children congregate. As far as the “loitering” laws, the state has not passed any such measure, but some localities have. I have been to my daughter’s swim meet, the swimming pool, and have taken my girls to the park with no problems. When other states have larger range restrictions as high as 2500 feet with churches and bus stops and include loitering and social media in their restrictions, Indiana seems pretty lame. Plus, the Indiana Supreme Court has already declared SORA punitive in nature in their decision in Wallace (2009), so if they add anything now, we won’t be a part of it.
