The Delaware American Civil Liberties Union has filed court papers to stop sex offenders from being evicted from a safe house that is located near a new day care center.
The ACLU, along with an attorney representing the safe house and three sex offenders, has asked a judge to issue a temporary restraining order to prevent the city from evicting the residents.
The state has asked the residents to leave, and if they dont leave they will be arrested, attorney Daniel Wolcott, Jr. told Fox News Radio.
Wolcott is representing the owner of the safe house and three sex offenders.
The safe house has been there for a number of years and has been accepting registered sex offenders who are prohibited from living within 500 feet of a school, he said.
Wolcott said there are two safe houses in question. One house was operating before the day care center opened for business. The other one was not. However, he said police said any sex offenders living at both houses would have to leave or face arrest.

These perverts do not change...
Yeah, like a 500 foot limit is going to prevent these perverts from molesting children.
If these convicted people cannot be trusted to be around children, then they should be on the streets period.
Molest a child, get executed or life without parole.
the day care center should never have been issued a license if the sex offenders were already there.
that said, if the sex offenders can’t be trusted, why are they allowed to be free?
Who is “safe” around this Safe House?
the ACLU need to watch their back
Why do sex offenders need a “safe house?”
We are the ones who need to be kept safe. The safest place for them is prison.
I'm of the mind when a person gets convicted of a crime, does his time, the price has been pain in full.
Restoration of all rights should be restored upon completion of the proscribed sentence.
I also thing that child molesters should get life or executed, but we better be careful on how we define "child" molestation. IOW, a 19 year old bedding his 17 year old girl friend does not qualify as child molestation in my view, neither does a guy who gets caught relieving himself in an alley should be considered a sex off fender, forced to register for life.
We need to start applying some good old common sense.
OK The ACLU ,has just assumed responsibility for these dregs!and should do the Jail time with them as well!
My question is, why are they “tracked” if they have served their time? What a waste of taxpayer funds. I can just see them ramming through the same legislation for tax evaders, deadbeat dads and student loan defaulters.
Law enforcement uses this if something of a sex offense happens in that area, they will check on the sex offenders in the area. That might end up saving a victim's life (and I believe it has in the past).
A convicted felon must contact a parole officer when they get out of jail. I guess sex offenders must keep doing it.
Just as a convicted felon has lost certain rights, in a sense a sex offender has lost some rights.
If a child disappears in an area with a sex offended, police have been known to check the sex offenders (and I am pretty sure that have saved children's lives in the past).
The day school should not have been issued a permit if that meant displacing the people who already were living nearby.
Reminds me of Miami where the only place the sex offenders could live was under a bridge.
I know their crimes are horrible and if it were up to me they’d be put to death. But it’s not and they’ve been put back into society and they need to live somewhere decent.
Seriously, we treat Islamic mass murderers better than this.
Maybe what’s needed is a new ‘Devil’s Island’ where we can banish these people and where they can live somewhat more freely than they do here.
I’d be willing to wager that no one in the diverse daycare permits department will be called to task on this snafu. promotions are most likely in order.
