CA - Audit Finds Sex Offenders Living in Homes Licensed for Foster Care, ChildCalifornia Audit Finds Sex Offenders Living in Homes Licensed for Foster Care, Child Care
FRESNO, Calif. – A new California state audit found that over 1,000 sex offenders are living in homes licensed to provide foster and child care services.
The startling information was uncovered after the audit was requested to investigate how Child Welfare Services handled child deaths in foster care homes.
The report found that California Department of Social Services failed to check the sex offender registry after recommendations and warnings from the state auditor three years ago.“

My posts are meant to help think through possibilities and are strictly an additional opinion under circumstances when many points of view need to be considered. I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error. Please understand that much of what is happening is merely brainstorming during unfortunate events.

From belimom's link
"Currently there is no state law that prevents a sex offender from living at homes where child care services are provided. A sex offender can visit friends and family members who have foster care facilities and stay up to a month without being required to submit a criminal record."

wow....I thought they had to maintain a distance from children if the y were convicted on child sex abuse.
SadJust my opinions (and I have been wrong before)!

Thanks Belimom for posting this story. I saw it yesterday at work but was unable to post at that time. I was shocked and dismayed to read it. WTH is wrong with our system that cracks, nay chasms, such as this exist? And why on earth has nothing been done about this if officials were put on notice of this extremely serious problem 3 YEARS AGO?
UN Freakin BELIEVABLE!

Campaigning to move from the AG to the governor's role;
Making sure they get paid by balancing the budget;
Doing everything possible to make sure those who are here illegally can receive benefits, while cutting pay to medical providers for the poor and disabled;
Making sure the unions are well fed;
how is there time to make sure the children of the state are safe and secure when all they as a group care about are themselves and the next vote.
We the people have to do what is necessary to protect the defenseless, this is outrageous.

Here in Oregon there are no "blanket" restrictions for RSOs. Unless there is a judge's order or parole officer's restriction, they can go anywhere and live anywhere they wish.
When our children's rapist was released two years ago I was appalled that he would be able to visit a relative who worked in the same school system where some of our kids were hurt. Only difference is that two of our grandsons now attend that school where the person works. I could not believe it but I checked with state police and it was true.
Now, if you are a certified F/C provider in Oregon, every person living in the home (over 16, I believe) must have a background check and there is cross agency reporting. But I don't think there's any prohibition about a RSO visiting. That just might be a loophole that needs to be closed. RSOs are not a "protected class" and thus must list their status on any rental or employment application but we all know that not all RSOs are truthful. Hardly.
