WASCO, Calif. - A sex offender ordinance in Wasco challenged by a law firm has been thrown out.
The ordinance adopted by the city in 2007 restricted offenders from getting 300 feet near of public or private places. This involved public libraries, schools, parks, bus stops and child care centers.
A Central Coast law office challenged that ordinance on grounds that it was too broad and violated offenders' constitutional rights.
As part of the settlement, the city of Wasco must now pay legal fees.
