Effective July 1, 2022, the statute of limitations for the prosecution of certain sexual performance by child (F.S. s. 827.071) offense is eliminated. CS/SB 1244, that was signed into law, provides that “a prosecution for any offense under s. 827.071(2) or (3), if the offender was 18 years of age or older at the time of the offense, may be commenced at any time.”

Another bill, SB 898, also referred to as Maya’s Law, was signed into law yesterday by Governor DeSantis. The new law will require that apartment complex workers will need to pass a criminal background check to screen out anyone with a history of a sex offense.
