Sex offenders convicted of more serious crimes in California, however, do get their addresses listed. And how can we effectively prevent rape? This happens often in the criminal justice system: Something designed for one purpose ends up getting used for something else.
But you can't Google your way to safety if — as Brock Turner's victim didn't — you don't know your assailant's name. Those were exactly the scenarios the registries were supposed to prevent, by allowing not only law enforcement but parents and others to know if any sex offenders lived or worked nearby.
Twenty years later, the focus on sex crimes has shifted from sexual abuse of children to sexual assault and rape. That's over and above the typical sorts of collateral consequences — laws restricting whom sex offenders can live with, where they can be licensed to work, and what sorts of benefits they can get.
There are plenty of people who, after completing terms in prison, report to law enforcement on a regular basis, are monitored, and live under restrictions on where they can go and whom they can live with.

In any case, neither you nor the association can force this new owner to move, provided that he is not violating any conditions of his status by living in his unit.
And are pedophiles allowed to purchase property in homeowner associations? About Us.
Those were exactly the scenarios the registries were supposed to prevent, by allowing not only law enforcement but parents and others to know if any sex offenders lived or worked nearby. But they're different questions from each other.
