Washington County’s Sheriff says he’s pleased with legislation that will modify Iowa’s sex offender laws. Jerry Dunbar says the previous law, which didn’t allow sex offenders to live within two thousand feet of an area where children were likely to be, was difficult to enforce. Dunbar says the new law creates “exclusion zones,” which are areas where sex offenders are not allowed to be. They include places like playgrounds, schools or daycares.
