Halloween Restrictions for Sex Offenders

Cindy Castillo Sex Crime, Arizona Law, AZ Events

As can be read in our previous articles about sex crimes in Arizona, Arizona is one of the strictest states when it comes to sex offenses. Sex offenders who are released on probation and/or who have sex offender terms will have restrictions on Halloween night.

Common restrictions for sex offenders on Halloween night

May include but are not limited to the following:

  • No passing out candy
  • No driving after dark
  • No wearing costumes or masks
  • No visiting haunted houses or mazes
  • No visiting any location primarily used by children

While these rules are comforting for parents on Halloween, many people on sex offender probation or sex offender registries are not aware of these rules and/or don’t think about them until after they’ve been violated by their probation officer or arrested by police. Halloween is without a doubt a scary time for those with children because of the dangers of trick-or-treating.

Therefore, for those that are on probation for sex related convictions or who are listed on a sex offender registry, it is important that these rules are followed strictly. Any misconduct on Halloween night could lead to a probation violation and even a revocation of probation. If you are unsure of the requirements of your probation, contact you Probation officer immediately. If you would like to modify or terminate the terms of your probation, contact an experienced attorney to talk about this option.
