ATLANTA, GA---The Georgia State Supreme Court has ruled Georgia's law prohibiting sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of child care facilities, schools, churches and other areas were children congregate as unconstitutional.
Under the statute "it is apparent that there is no place in Georgia where a registered sex offender can live without being continually at risk of being rejected," today's opinion said.
