Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Under the NC General Statutes, Article 27A of Chapter 14, the reporting is to the county sheriff, as you have read. The county sheriff maintains the sex offender registry.
Unfortunately, the NC general statutes while they do not include home based schools in prohibitions from living near a school, they do include home based child care facilities. Thus, if there is a home based child care facility in the area, you could not reside there unless you were living in the place first and the child care facility opened after you resided in the neighborhood.
Your grandchildren, unless the offense was committed against a grandchild, are prohibited without permission from the court
. The law states you can only be around your own children, it does not mention grandchildren, so that would require court permission and with court permission you can have them over.
NC GS 14-208.6(4)(b), states a person convicted out of state must register in NC as long as they are required to register in the state of their conviction. This is the simplest rule that you have to abide by because all of the dates you keep reading are for convictions in North Carolina, they are not applied to out of state convictions which you fall under.
If you run your own business out of your home, NC has no restrictions on home based businesses and nothing special for a sex offender running the type of business you are seeking to run.
