Abstract: 

The first installment of this multipart article sets forth some of the issues convicted sex offenders face while pondering the first question they must answer before getting out of prison: Where will you be living? Since virtually all states require a bona fide address for registration purposes prior to a prisoner’s release, this can pose a daunting challenge in the best of circumstances. Of course, for former sex offenders, the “best of circumstances” is a relative term. (John S. Furlong, “Property and Casualties: Eminent Domainand Exclusionary Zones,” 9 (3) SLR 33 (Apr./May 2008).) This article continues John Furlong’s look at the consequences of residency restrictions on sex offenders, exploring a cost-benefit analysis of these laws and asking if it is really worth the effort.
