FROM THIS EPISODE

Prop 83, which passed with 70% of the vote this month, restricts where paroled sex offenders can live and requires them to wear satellite tracking devices for the rest of their lives. But two federal judges already have suspended it and Attorney General Bill Lockyer has changed his mind on who it applies to.

Main Topic Implementing Jessica's Law

Just three weeks ago, 70% of California voters approved tough new restrictions on sex offenders. "Jessica's Law" requires paroled sex offenders to live more than 2000 yards from a school or a park and to wear satellite tracking devices for the rest of their lives.  The Governor's High-Risk Sex Offender Task Force hasn't even made recommendations, but two federal judges have already suspended the residential requirements of Proposition 83. State Attorney General Bill Lockyer has changed his mind about who it applies to and parole officials say it might cost more than its authors ever intended. We update the confusion and continuing controversy over a popular initiative.

Guests:
Bill Sessa, Spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation
Jenifer Warren, Staff writer for the Los Angeles Times
Michael McAssey, Convicted sex offender whose parole ended more than two years ago
Steve Ipsen, victims' rights attorney (@steveipsen)
