California Supreme Court Permits Sex Offender Arrests

The California Supreme Court will let the state arrest recently paroled sex offenders living near schools and parks, despite arguments that the law may be unconstitutional.

The year-old Jessica's Law sets strict residency requirements for sex offenders. Attorneys representing the parolees say it punishes offenders after they are released from prison.

Last week, the high court blocked the arrests of four sex offenders.

It now is refusing to apply that order to the roughly 850 recent parolees who were told they must move.

Instead, the court says parolees' attorneys must go to a lower court to seek a broader injunction.
