FIRST ON FOX: Sex Offenders Living and Working in Local Nursing Homes

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:12 PM EDT
No one expects a registered sex offender to be residing inside the same nursing home as their loved ones. But that is exactly what a Fox 45 Crime & Justice investigation uncovered.

We found dozens of offenders living in nursing homes across the region. Under Maryland law, nursing homes as well as assisted living facilities don't have to disclose to residents or their guardian that a sex offender also resides there.

Montgomery County Delegate Ben Kramer has been fighting on behalf of Maryland's aging population. Kramer's tried  to have restrictions put in place but has faced opposition by colleagues as well as the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

So far 41 registered sex offenders have been tracked to addresses that belong to nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
