La Mesa looking to create tougher sex offender law

The La Mesa City Council (near San Diego) voted unanimously to have the city attorney draft an oridinance similar to the one recently passed by National City. It would ban registered sex offenders from being within 300 feet of certain places children are likely to congregate, such as pre-schools, daycares, video arcades, parks and playgrounds.

The law will be introduced at the council's Dec. 13 meeting as an "urgency ordinance," meaning it would take effect immediately if approved.

"If we had known we could have done this before, we would have done it a long time ago," Councilman Barry Jantz said. "It took National City to open our eyes to the fact that we can."

Jantz and Councilman Dave Allan brought the issue to the council. Both have been active in an East County task force aimed at cracking down on registered sex offenders.

Council members said the local restrictions would be another tool for police. If more cities adopt such ordinances, they said, it could force the state to strengthen its regulations.
