On May 7, 2010, it was reported that Anaheim authorities had broken up an encampment of about 40 paroled sex offenders, who had parked along a street in front of a parole office in Anaheim. Anaheim is a city in Orange County, California, and as of January 2009, it’s population was approximately 350,000. The city anticipates that the population will surpass 400,000 by 2014 due to rapid development in its Platinum Triangle area, was well as Anaheim Hills. Anaheim, the second most populous city in Orange County, is known as the home of Disneyland, the Anaheim Convention Center, and the Anaheim Angels.
Sex Offender registration, under California Penal Code section 290, is a system in California designed to allow government authorities to keep track of the residence and activities of prior sex offenders, including those who have completed their criminal sentences. In California, information in the registry is made public via a website, or other means, and registered offenders are subject to additional restrictions, including housing. Those on parole, or probation, may be subject to restrictions that don’t apply to other parolees, or probationers. Sometimes these restrictions include restrictions on being in the presence of minors, living in proximity to a school or daycare, or using the internet. What most people don’t know is that certain types of offenders can be removed from having their picture on the internet, if they were convicted of certain types of offense.
