CALIFORNIA — Sex offenders in California won’t have to post signs on their houses this Halloween.

A reform group representing sex offenders won a lawsuit against California’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

The reform group argued that requiring convicted sex offenders to place a sign on the door was unconstitutional.

There are some rules that are still in place.

Sex offenders are also banned from decorating their homes and opening the front door to trick-or-treaters.

They are also required to stay inside between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Halloween night.
