Sex Offenders Checked for Halloween Compliance by Cole County Deputies

Cole County Deputies will be traveling throughout Jefferson City and Cole County tonight (Tuesday), to verify registered sex offenders are complying with Halloween Restrictions.

Missouri Law requires offenders to avoid all Halloween related contact with children and remain inside their homes between the hours of 5pm and 10:30, unless required to be elsewhere for just cause.

The law also requires offenders to post a sign stating no candy or treats at this residence. Violators can be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
