SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A new report has found two registered sex offenders living in Utah homes licensed to provide child care.

The findings were part of a Utah State Auditor’s report released Wednesday about what access sex offenders have to vulnerable groups.

The report says regulators revoked a license for one home day care where a sex offender resided after auditors flagged the issue.

Utah health department spokesman Tom Hudachko says the agency could not revoke the license for the second home day care because a resident there had their conviction expunged. The person was still listed in Utah’s sex offender database.

Hudachko says the department can’t revoke a license without a conviction.

The report found no sex offenders at foster homes or working at the state hospital, disabilities center or at school districts and charter schools surveyed.
