Notify Police 15 days Before You Move to City

April 14, 2009 Comments off (W.Va.-AP) – Sex offenders who plan to live in Weirton will have to notify police 15 days before they move to the city.

An ordinance approved Monday by City Council requires the advance notification. It went into effect immediately after passage. Violators face fines of $250 to $1,000 and up to 30 days in jail. The old ordinance required sex offenders to register within 15 days of entering the city.

Now ask yourself; how many people moving to this city will know this law in advance of living there?
