In Relation to Custody and Visitation Rights of a Sex Offender

Subject: S. 2481 /Flanagan A.3548/Gabryszak (AN ACT to amend the corrections law, in relation to custody and visitation rights of a sex offender) Position: Opposed This legislation would bar a court from granting an individual who is required to register as a sex offender the physical or legal custody of – or unsupervised visitation with – a child.
