Sun Sentinel’s Sex Offender Investigation
The kidnapping, rape and murder of 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce in south Miami-Dade in 1995 eventually led to the creation of a law meant to keep the worst sexual offenders off the streets by allowing them to be detained after their prison sentences end. Fourteen years after the Jimmy Ryce Act was passed, the Sun Sentinel found that hundreds of sexual offenders were being released only to reoffend again. We discuss the investigation and what the Florida Legislature plans to do to address the issue.
