The City of Irvine, California is being sued by Janice Bellucci (ACSOL) on behalf of two persons required to register who want to take their own children to a park. According to this article, Irvine’s municipal code requires people on the registry who were convicted of an offense involving a minor to get written permission from the police chief to enter any city park or recreation facility; violation of the rule is a misdemeanor that could carry a fine or jail time.
This isn’t the first time ACSOL has had to bring a suit to challenge a park proximity ban. It might not be the last. We wish Janice and her clients good luck with this case.
