(Simi Valley, CA) -- Sex offenders will be able to hand out candy this Halloween in Simi Valley. The city council decided on Monday night to overturn the law aimed at protecting children from sexual predators by letting them give sweets to kids trick-or-treating.
City leaders say the law wouldn't stand up in a legal appeal, so they killed it. Mayor Bob Huber and the city council enacted the law back in 2012, but since then, two federal lawsuits have been filed saying the law is unconstitutional. Sex offenders can now decorate their houses without being cited by police.
