Post-trial and SOR

Daily Commercial reports:

To police Chief Ed Nathanson, it doesn’t matter where you’ve been convicted as a sex offender or predator.

It only matters that you’ve been convicted.

So, if you are convicted out of state or in a court martial, your conviction still counts in Lady Lake, and you have to register as a sex offender or predator with the police department.

"I don’t want any gray area," Nathanson said on Tuesday. "It’ll help us keep individuals like this out of our area."

The impetus for the change in the local law was a sex offender who was court-martialed and convicted and wanted to live in Lady Lake without registering, Nathanson said.

This is not an unusual situation out there.
