FL: Lawmakers tighten limits on sex offenders

FLEMING ISLAND, Fla. – Florida Lawmakers have passed numerous laws punishing those convicted of sex crimes and this year added more laws designed to keep the worst of the worst away from your children.

The Legislature made tighter laws after it was reported that 594 sexual offenders had gone free since 1999, only to commit 463 child molestations, 121 rapes and 14 murders. Also fresh on their mind was the summer 2013 abduction, rape and murder of Cherish Perrywinkle, an 8-year-old Jacksonville girl. A registered sex offender, Donald Smith, will be tried next year for those crimes. Full Article

    NONE of these laws could have prevented this tragedy.
    However, that girl’s parents keeping an eye on her would have!
    Just saying.

    “594 sexual offenders had gone free since 1999, only to commit 463 child molestations, 121 rapes and 14 murders.” Where did they find these numbers?

      The same place they “found” the votes for Bush…they pulled them out of their a$$!

    Supposedly, the 50 year minimum is for ANY registrable sex offense, including CP and internet stings, and they plan on including registration violations into the mix. This is a state on steroids. Get the HELL out of Florida, NOW!

    • Eric Knight

      I stand corrected, the 50 year sentence is for the most “heinous” crimes. But the average sheeple is going to take from this story that, indeed, EVERY sex offender is going to fall under this sentence. When of course they don’t, then that will get the sheeple in torches and pitchforks to increase THOSE punishments.

    Well, I’m not sure what to say. Its certainly very important to have laws in place, but its becoming increasingly apparent Florida is going overboard. I read somewhere where they are sending sex offenders away for 50 years/thats basically a life sentence? Was that for a second offense? Very disturbing.
