Halloween is tomorrow, and that means that a night of trick-or-treating and mischief is sure to ensue. In addition to offering New York CLE, Marino Legal wants you to stay informed and safe this holiday. While it’s a very fun time for all, there are some laws that must be remembered while partaking in the festivities!
Zero Tolerance – In New York City, sex offenders must remain inside on Halloween. They cannot wear costumes, and cannot answer the door for trick-or-treaters. Given this rule is followed efficiently, it can offer a sense of relief for parents letting their children go about this Thursday.
Fake Gun Law – Fake guns are outlawed in NYC. So, if you’re going to be an outlaw yourself, you may need to consider a costume change. One exception is fluorescent colored fake weapons, which may kill your hard look, but will keep the police and people surrounding you happy.
The Mask Laws – Anyone over the age of 16 cannot wear a mask, unless you are at a masquerade. This is to protect all, and should be taken seriously. If you’re over the age of 16 and are going to wear a mask, you must be inside a home or at a masked event.
Have a safe and fun Halloween! Visit Marino Legal for your CLE online needs!
