Description
Following the murder of seven-year-old Megan Kanka by a neighbor who was a convicted sex offender, her outraged community took action. Author Margie Druss Fodor explores the laws that resulted. She shows both sides of the issue concerning the rights of people to know if a sex offender is living in their neighborhood versus the right of a person to privacy after serving time for committing a crime. The author also includes a history of sexual offender laws.
