I was under the impression that a registered sex offender could NOT be around children or within a certain distance of places like schools and playrounds. Am I right or wrong? Is it different for those registered offenders from out of state, or must they abide by NC laws when residing here?

The sentence should be more severe for a second time offender, Not only is this offense against a child, its against a 5 year old. No way could they have defended themselves even if they had wished to. Hopefully the justice system will prevail this time around.
