MARYVILLE, MO (2008-10-29) Halloween is supposed to be scary for kids.
But there's a real concern for our listening area state authorities want you to be aware of.
They're sexual predators, and a new state law this year is trying to make it safer.
There are a dozen sexual offenders listed by the highway patrol living in Maryville…. 14 in Chillicothe… 20 in Trenton… and more than 120 in St. Joseph.
The Department of Probation and Parole says the new law requires these perpetrators to stay in their home halloween night between 5 o-clock and 10-30.
It also requires them to post a sign reading "no candy or treats at this residence" on their front doors.
That sign will come from the Department of Probation.
Officials say it's to make sure there's no contact between kids and registered sex offenders this friday night.
