New sex offender rules take effect in Ala. county

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A new law that limits the number of registered sex offenders living together in Jefferson County is in effect.

The law, passed by the Legislature in the recent session, bars landlords from housing more than one registered sex offender under one roof. It requires offenders who live in an apartment to reside at least 100 yards from each other.

The measure took effect Thursday.

Sgt. Jacob Reach, who oversees the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office sex offender unit, says people already living at a facility housing multiple offenders will be grandfathered in under the law, but no new person can move into the facility.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
