The article focuses on the implications of residency restrictions for sex offenders in the U.S. The author discusses a case of a person released from prison who was banned to live at a certain housing. According to the author, experts believe that residency restriction for sex offenders may lead to more problems rather than solve. Critics state that while residency restriction reduces offenders' access to community, it also promotes more problems because the deprivation may trigger offenders to commit new crimes. The article also discusses the situation of group homes in the U.S.
