Official Wants Sex Offenders Banned from Fairgrounds

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) – The lead prosecutor in South Dakota’s Brown County wants commissioners to ban convicted sex offenders from the fairgrounds during the annual county fair.

State’s Attorney Larry Lovrien says many of the events at the fair are geared toward children, and that many volunteers and vendors who work at the fair are sex offenders. His proposal aims to keep the fairgrounds safe for children.

The American News reports that Lovrien is suggesting the county declare the fairgrounds a public park or playground each year during the fair. That would make the fairgrounds a “community safe zone,” and sex offenders are forbidden by law from coming within 500 feet of such areas.

County commissioners have not taken any action on the proposal.
