Alabama Makes New Ruling on Sex Offenders

A decision on sex offenders’ whereabouts is up for discussion.

The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals is deciding four cases that will determine if a convicted sex offender must provide a permanent address after they're released from prison.

Last year, it was ruled, in separate cases, that a law requiring convicted sex offense inmates to have a permanent address before they're released is vague and unconstitutional.

Attorney General Troy King has asked that the law be reinstated.

He says it's a way to keep an eye on people convicted of sex crimes like rape.

Attorneys say the court could make a ruling at any time.
