Halloween is supposed to be a creepy but fun time for kids. The key here is to make sure the fun part outweighs the creepy part, right? As you make plans to take the kids door to door for trick-or-treating, it's imperative you know where the registered sex offenders are on your route.

By law, registered sex offenders are prohibited from participating in handing out candy to kids on Halloween. I don't know about you, but I'd rather not count on anyone playing by the rules. I want to know definitively what areas to avoid with my kids.

With information compiled from city-data.com, here is our guide to avoiding these criminals and keeping your children safe this Halloween.
