What are a tenant's rights if a landlord fails to disclose that a sex offender also lives in their building?

Question Details:

While we were working on renting our place, my landlord did not notify me that they had just rented the upstairs to a sex offender. We had asked them about the neighborhood and they told us it was a quiet with good neighbors. We have been here almost 2 months and just found out the apartment above us is rented to a sex offender who's charged with sexual assault of a minor under 16. I have a small child myself and have seen him trying to talk with her (I never let her outside alone, but this concerns me because she's learning to open doors). Do I have any legal rights here?
