Whether you think about it or not, paroled sex offenders are out there, and they could be right in your backyard.
Something that has a lot of parents fired up is that sex offenders in our state have few restrictions on where they can live.
Some parents 5 News spoke with said it's something that bothers them.
"It worries me. I have a 16-year old daughter and don't want her safety compromised," said Cheryl Dort, a parent.
One mom said she checks the website quite frequently, she always double checks to make sure she doesn't live near a sex offender. She also looks to see if any of them are living near her daughter's school, a local park, or anywhere else where she could be in danger.
"I check it all the time. I have a little 6-year old daughter, and I always make sure there aren't any near her school, a park, or somewhere we should could be in danger," said Diana Geiger, a parent.
