FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Attorney General Jack Conway is asking the
U.S. Supreme Court to suspend the Kentucky Supreme Court's recent
ruling which loosened restrictions on where convicted sex offenders
Kentucky's high court recently denied Conway's request to
suspend its own ruling while he appeals to the federal supreme
The state court ruled Oct. 1 that Kentucky's sex offender law,
passed in 2006, was unconstitutional because it also applied to sex
offenders who were convicted before the law was on the books. The
law barred sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of schools,
daycare centers, playgrounds and other places where children
Conway has until Dec. 30 to file a motion seeking the federal
court's review, a move he says he'll do.
