When Iowa enforced 2000 foot residency restrictions in 2005, homelessness increased, absconding/ failure to register cases increased, and overall s*x crime rates slightly increased. In 209, Iowa repealed these restrictions for most registrants.
In South Florida, residency restrictions force registrants to live under bridges, along train tracks and in abandoned warehouses. The most egregious example was the camp living under the Julia Tuttle Causeway from 2007-2010.
Studies have failed to find any link between residency laws and re-offending, but the evidence of the negative impact of these laws is plain as day. More truth at oncefallen.
