Story Updated: Feb 26, 2008
We have an update to one of our past Daily Download topics. Earlier this month we told you how St. Louis suburb Florissant banned convicted sex offenders from parks and recreation centers. Florissant isn't the only area with this ban now.

The St. Charles County council approved a similar ban Monday night. The new measure bans convicted child sex offender from entering the county's parks. Violators could face a fine of $1,000, one year in jail, or both.

St. Charles County will make exceptions for sex offenders who received advance permission from the county parks director to attend special events.

Registered sex offenders will receive notices of the new ban by mail.
