FL: Homeless offenders in Brevard County struggle to find resources and shelter

Source: floridatoday.com 1/3/22

Jason ____ is sitting in Brevard County Jail waiting to appear before a judge on a charge of violating parole.

He’d rather be anywhere else, but the reality is he’s not wanted many other places.

A charge against him made in 1998 at 15 years old, of which he was convicted in 2000, has marked him as a sex offender. He is one of 735 registered sex offenders in Brevard County, according to statistics from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

That status makes Jason something of a pariah.

Housing is hard to come by, and the curfew he has because he’s on parole after failing to register as a sex offender in 2017 means he has to return to the same spot every night, making it difficult to travel far to look for a home or work. 

Since 2017, Jason has called a Melbourne homeless camp home.

The Florida Department of Corrections registered his GPS monitor and ankle bracelet there. It was where he was required to return each night. But in early December, the camp was marked to be bulldozed by the property owner and he was charged with violating parole.
