ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Lawmakers are considering banning student sex offenders from school campuses statewide.

Baltimore County State Senator Kathy Klausmeier announced the proposal Monday morning. She said, the bill would apply to registered sex offenders regardless of their age.

This comes after a 21-year-old convicted sex offender was re-enrolled at a Baltimore County public school.

"We do not want this to happen again, there will be no sex offenders in our schools in Maryland." said Senator Kathy Klausmeier.

Klausmeier said there are other ways for students to get their education besides sitting in a classroom with other students.
