BUTTS COUNTY, Ga. (WSB/WJHL) — Sex offenders in Georgia have filed a class-action lawsuit over signs that were placed in front of their homes warning kids not to trick-or-treat at that residence.
This marks the second year police have put the signs in the yards of sex offenders in Butts County, according to WSB.
The signs read: “NO TRICK-OR-TREAT AT THIS ADDRESS!! A COMMUNITY SAFETY MESSAGE FROM BUTTS COUNTY SHERIFF GARY LONG.”
Some of the offenders have filed a lawsuit claiming the signs violate their right to privacy and other rights.
A judge is supposed to decide Thursday if the signs can go up again this year.
