WOODBURY - Suffolk's Department of Social Services has unveiled a plan to set up six mini-shelters across the county for convicted sex offenders.
Newsday reports that no more than six homeless sex offenders could live in any shelter, and only one mini-shelter would be set up per town.
So far, the shelters' locations have not been announced.
The mini-shelters would replace the controversial sex offender trailers in Riverhead and Westhampton.
Officials say the first mini-shelter could open by this summer.
