Q: are child molesters allowed to have contact with victims after release from jail? A response asap would help us dearly.

Wife was molested 4 years throughout highschool by a man who was unofficially her step father, now that he is out of prison they have had their run ins at stores and such and the second run in he kept asking her for a hug and sent her into a panic attack, is he allowed to have contact with her at all? I thought even after he got out of jail he was not to have any contact at all. If not please let me know ASAP so his PO can be contacted and he can leave our family alone again

A: The owner is strictly liable for dog bite, meaning even without a showing of negligence. As a dog sitter, you would be liable if the dog bit someone due to your negligence.
