Add 2018 to the list of years in which the sex offender registry became more onerous and restrictive (and punitive). Governor Rick Scott signed HB 1301/SB 1226 into law.
CS/HB 1301/SB 1226 Sexual Offenders and Predators – This bill enhances registration requirements for sexual offenders and sexual predators. It shortens the time that a registrant is required to register a residence (even temporary) from 5 days to 3 days and it imposes a 6 month mandatory minimum community control sentence with GPS monitoring for any technical registration violation.
The registry is NOTHING like it was in 2003 when the Supreme Court of the United States agreed that it was no more onerous than a price club membership application.
