Yesterday, Senator Schumer announced that he wanted to close the loopholes that allow sex offenders to work with children. NY1 reports, "Laws nationwide prohibit sex offenders from working as school teachers and coaches. But most laws don't cover karate or dance instructors, youth coaches, carnival workers and children's entertainers in the provate sector when government funds are not involved." Schumer, who proposed the legislation after stories like this one, said, "These positions, whether paid of voluntary, put dangerous sexual predators in immediate proximately to kids and gives these predators positions of authority while interacting with kids. That is a combination just looking for trouble."
