Like the plot to a John Waters movie, Riverside County supervisors voted to ban sex offenders from decorating their homes with holiday accents and leaving lights on during Halloween night. "They also cannot answer their door to pass out candy to children," reports AP.
Offending sex offenders could face a $1,000 fine and six months in the clink.
According to The Press Enterprise, Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone "said he hopes parents and others look up where registered sex offenders live in the Megan’s Law online database before heading out for trick or treating. And if they see the lights on or decorations out front, Stone said he wants residents to call authorities."
Oh, Jeff, that really does sound like fun for the entire family come All Hallow's Eve. Gives new meaning to the term "spooktacular."
