In the second installment of my favorite new criminal laws, we'll be discussing child molestors, zoos and circuses.
Possible License Revocation for 4th time DUI offender
Starting in January 1, 2012, at the discretion of the judge, a person convicted of a fourth DUI within 10 years may lose his or her license for 10 years.
Expungements now available for Infractions.
Expungements which were formally available only for those convicted of felonies and misdemeanors are now available for those convicted of infractions. Gaining an expungement releases the defendant from all penalties and disabilities flowing from the conviction.  
Child Molester Parolees may not enter a park
If one is convicted of child molestation, during the term of their parole they may not enter a park where children play without the express permission of their parole agent.
No Trespassing at the Zoo or Circus
It is now a crime to enter an animal cage at the zoo or a prohibited area at the circus. The crime can be either an infraction or a misdemeanor.
