Megan's Law Oppresses Ex-PrisonersThis article responds to the enactment in several states of Megan's Law, which mandates that communities in which a convicted sex offender resides be notified of the offender's residence and criminal background. The writer objects to the law on the grounds that it encourages the mistreatment of offenders after they are released, and that it may encourage discrimination against gays convicted of engaging in consensual homosexual sex.
