California Legislative Report: Sex Offenders Working As Drug Counselors

The investigative arm of the state Senate has found nearly two dozen registered sex offenders serving as substance-abuse counselors in California, which lacks procedures to screen them out.

The report released today said that California and Pennsylvania are the only two large states that conduct no criminal background checks on drug and alcohol counselors.

California also has no system to weed out counselors who are convicted of crimes after they have started working.
