Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Criminal Law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
This law is very confusing - - even for attorneys! The rule is generally that a sex offender can't live within 1,000 feet of a child care facility, a school or a church.
HOWEVER, there are exceptons because restrictions are different for each sex offender depending on the date of the crime they committed. The categories include: Crimes committed prior to June 4, 2003; between June 4, 2003 - June 30, 2006; July 1, 2006 - June 30, 2008; and July 1, 2008, or after.
Those offenders who committed a crime prior to June 4, 2003, have no residency or employment restrictions. In the years after, the state's legislature enacted strict rules that made it nearly impossible for sex offenders to find suitable residency. The most recent legislative action has been to relax those restrictions.
Other than this general rule, whether or not the person can have contact with children depends on what the court order/judgment says and also depends on the terms of his probation.
Thus, you would have to contact his probation officer to see what the terms of his probation are. You can look the person up on the sex registry to see if he's a predator or not: http://services.georgia.gov/gbi/gbisor/ControllerServlet. Usually, if the person isn't a predator, it's less likely that he would have as strict restrictions as if he were a preditor.
However, you would have to contact his probation officer to know this for certain.
