VA Bill Protects Employers of Sex Offenders Bill Protects Employers of Sex Offenders.

Richmond – A bill making headway in the General Assembly seeks to protect employers of sex offenders by not listing the name of the offender’s workplace on Virginia’s Sex Offender Registry. (Yes, folks: in most states, any employment location of a registered sex offender is posted online)

Senate Bill 635, sponsored by Sen. Dave Marsden (D-Burke), would still list a sex offender’s work address. The bill passed the Senate unanimously this month and now will be considered by the House of Delegates.

Marsden said the bill is meant to help sex offenders integrate back into society.

(All this bill does is to remove the negative publicity of the businesses. It will do nothing to help those on a registry to get a job!
To suggest or believe so is foolish.)
