FL: Facing legal challenge, Pasco County changes strict sex offender law

The Pasco County Commission on Tuesday amended its sex offender ordinance, the 2015 law that severely restricts where certain registered offenders can live or even go in the county.

But why the commission changed the law — which is being challenged in court — is in dispute.

Patrick Leduc, the attorney who is challenging the county’s ordinance on behalf of three registered sex offenders, said the changes were designed to protect the ordinance from his legal challenge. Full Article

When I first started reading this article, I was thinking oh….here’s a county getting ahead of the curve because they feel local rso ordinances in Florida may get overturned in the near future
Upon further reading, I found Pasco County’s ordinance is just overly draconian even far more than state law. Not only does Pasco tell a registrant where not to live but where not to go. And even a school bus stop! could be considered a no go zone for a registrant. So don’t expect any change anytime soon in the state of Floriduh. If you’re a registrant, I would stay as far away from there as possible

what amazes is that sat. cloud Florida has these same laws just like Miami and i think even put the laws into law way before Miami but no one says a thing about it, makes me wonder how many other little towns are like this.
I know about a year or 2 ago they were pressing Orlando to come up with laws to keep the price club members out but have not seen much about it for a long time.

opps saint cloud, fl.

Something tells me Orlando adopted it. Especially with family friendly Disneyworld in its midst. I have a feeling the ordinance is ignored by international tourists who committed sex offenses back home. Mostly due to ignorance of the law since registries don’t even exist in 90% of the world

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
