SAN DIEGO -- (KSWB) -- The group California Reform Sex Offender Laws and a sex offender on parole filed a lawsuit in San Diego federal court Wednesday challenging a requirement that sex offenders on parole post a sign on the front door of their home on Halloween, as required by the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

"CDCR's requirement that all parolees post a sign on the front door of their residence violates the First Amendment because it compels speech," said Janice Bellucci, attorney for the plaintiffs.

"The sign requirement also places in significant danger the lives of sex offenders and those with whom they reside."
