On Friday, convicted sex offenders whose victims were children and who are on probation must be home by 6 p.m.
Officers in Lubbock, Potter and Tom Green counties will check on the 100 or so men and women throughout the night as part of Project Lights Out.
"It's good to know they are putting sex offenders on notice," said Margaret Crawford, who planned to take her 8-year-old son out to collect candy and treats. "I think that's a top priority for any parent."
Well...I've got mixed feelings about this. I know from a psychological standpoint that pedophiles are almost impossible to cure, but many of these offenders really want to put their past behind them. They did the time or whatever their sentence was...why continue to be punished.
