In response to a recent Orange County law banning sex offenders from county parks and beaches, on May 16, 2011, Huntington Beach will vote on a similar law banning sex offenders from Huntington Beach City beaches and parks.

The new law will impose a profound burden on police resources already depleted by the California budget crisis. Also, advocates question the wisdom of the ban, arguing that the ban merely projects a false sense of security within the community.

The Orange County District Attorney has pushed for these laws throughout the county, but it will not have to expend it own resources to apprehend these suspects. Instead, it will rely on law enforcement to enforce a policy that has no factual support as to its efficacy.

These laws are part of a movement to punish convicted sex offenders, no matter how minor the offense and no matter how great the cost to enforce. Because of the significant consequences associated with a sex crimes conviction or guilty plea, if you are accused of a sex crime, contact a Southern California criminal defense attorney immediately so you and your lawyer can begin your defense.
