Current Bill Summary

CCS#2/HCS/SB 250 - Under current law, sexual assault offenders imprisoned by the department of corrections must complete all treatment, education, and rehabilitation programs provided by the department of corrections. This act requires the offender to complete such programs before being eligible for probation or conditional release.

Current law prohibits certain sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of public and private schools, and child-care facilities as that term is defined under section 210.201. This act expands the list of places certain sex offenders may not live within 1,000 feet of to include any child-care facility that is licensed under chapter 210 and any license-exempt child-care facility that is subject to state regulations regarding fire, safety, health, and sanitation inspections.

This act is similar to HB 384 (2011) and contains provisions identical to SS/SCS/HCS/HB 111 (2011).
