Random visits to Colorado sex offenders planned on Halloween

The Associated Press

DENVER — The Colorado Department of Corrections will randomly check on paroled sex offenders across the state this Halloween to ensure they’re not giving out candy to kids.

The agency says only those being supervised under sex offender directives are barred from Halloween activities, including trick-or-treating or answering the door to trick-or-treaters.

Sex offenders are also not allowed to put up decorations at their home that could attract trick-or-treaters.

The Department of Corrections Division of Adult Parole will work with local law enforcement agencies to make the random visits.

On the Fly: Forever thankful

|

I try to remember to give thanks every day I spend outside, whether it be floating the Colorado or Roaring Fork, fishing an epic dry fly hatch on the Fryingpan, or teasing up tiny brook trout on a remote lake or stream. We’re spoiled rotten here, so it’s easy to be thankful.
