Quick question for anyone out there that may be familiar with NY PL 65.10 i.e. any state troopers, police officers or sheriff's deputies...

That is the law that restricts sex offenders from living within 1000 ft of school grounds if they are classified as risk level 3 and / or their victim was under the age of 18... and the question is - is that distance measured as a straight line e.g. if it were measured as though the person could / would cut across people's yards... or is road travel required used ?!

The reason I ask is that I received one of the automatic notifications today for a level 2 sex offender that is still on probation who was convicted for acts with an under age victim... and the person has moved to a residence within 1000 ft straight line distance of the local high school... but by road its more like 2500 ft... and my neighbors and I didn't think that was legal but there he is...

Btw and to add insult to injury - and an additional reason for the concern is that the address he has listed has a backyard that borders on the local park that ALL the area kids go to ( especially during the summer ) to play at...

Thanks in advance.
