Associated Press: SAN DIEGO -- More than 70 percent of the registered sex offenders in San Diego County are violating a state law by living too close to schools or parks.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports Sunday that 1,266 out of 1,731 offenders' addresses made public by the state are in violation of Jessica's Law. The data was analyzed by the nonprofit group the Watchdog Institute.

Jessica's Law, which critics say is poorly worded, was approved by voters in 2006. It bars sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of a school or park.

The law doesn't specify whether residence restrictions apply to all convicted offenders or only to those who were convicted or paroled after the law passed. There are no penalties for violating the restrictions.
