Sex offenders in one Georgia county are outraged that the sheriff is posting "No trick or treat" signs outside their homes. Sheriff Gary long says he wants to keep the children in Butts County safe. (Butts is in Central Georgia, its biggest city is Jackson.)
But the offenders have hired an attorney who is suing the sheriff who say this violates their constitutional rights. They claim that because Georgia law does not require them to place the signs in their yards, the Sheriff's Office has no right to trespass on their property to put up the signs.
"I'm just not sure that this kind of action makes your kids any safer," Mark Yurachek, told WAGA-TV. "It just makes your constitutional rights less safe."
