Tenant's Housing Voucher Terminated Due to Sex Offender Conviction
LVT Number: #30008
Section 8 tenant sued to reverse a county hearing officer's decision to terminate his Housing Choice Voucher assistance. Tenant was a convicted sex offender, and a level 2 registered sex offender. The county had issued a notice of intent to terminate the voucher due to criminal activity. Tenant argued that the county improperly terminated his Section 8 voucher due to his sex offender registration. But the county's decision noted that it wasn't tenant's registration, but convictions, that were grounds for his termination.
