violating this provision will be guilty of a class D felony for a
first offense and a class B felony for each subsequent offense.
If the offender has already established a residence and a public
city or municipal park is subsequently built or placed within

the sheriff in the county where the park is located within one
week of the park opening.  Any offender violating this provision
will be guilty of a class A misdemeanor for a first offense and a
class D felony for each subsequent offense.

Certain sexual offenders are prohibited from being present or
loitering within 500 feet of a public city or municipal park
unless the offender is a parent, legal guardian, or custodian of
a child and has permission to be present from the city or
municipal official responsible for the park.  Any offender
violating this provision will be guilty of a class A misdemeanor.
