Sex offenders to be monitored during Halloween

October 21st, 2011 11:35 pm by Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn.  — State probation and parole officers will be making announced and unannounced visits with sex offenders to make sure they are complying with restrictions during Halloween and fall events such as haunted houses and corn mazes.

The offenders cannot answer the door to trick-or-treaters, pass out candy, decorate their homes, host Halloween parties or wear costumes, and they have other regulations.

State officials said Friday that offenders sign a letter acknowledging the restrictions.

Probation and parole officers will be accompanied by local law enforcement officers on many visits.
