Martin County commissioners Tuesday will consider expanding the distance registered sex offenders in the county have to live from playgrounds, schools and day care centers.

Current registered sex offenders living in the county would be grandfathered into the new rule, if it is approved.

Sheriff William Snyder is asking the county to change the requirement from 1,000 feet to 2,500 feet away.

It’s an idea that resonates well with many parents, but there are others who feel the expanded living restrictions could do some harm.
