I have a friend in Michigan who has to register for life as a sex offender. Can he be around or live with someone who has children under the age of 18?
It depends on what his conditions of parole are. If his sex offense had nothing to do with children and he is not deemed to be a danger to children he may not be prohibited from contact with them. It depends on what his conditions are which vary from case to case.
If the sex offender is on parole, they will need to check with their parole agent to determine what the conditions are. If the sex offender is no longer on parole, there is no law that will prevent the person from being around or living with children as long as they are in conformity with the laws regarding student safety zones. However, moving a sex offender in with their children is something that might catch the eye of Child Protective Services and cause the mother some serious problems. In addition, why anyone would want a sex offender to live with their children is beyond me. Registering for life means your friend is a Tier 3 offender, which encompasses all sex offenses against children under 13.
