State Cracks Down on Sex Offenders

June 16th, 2009 by flanews

The state will soon be able to keep better track of sex offenders because of legislation the governor signed Tuesday.

Governor Charlie Crist signed legislation requiring all people arrested on felony charges to submit DNA samples to the Florida Department of Law Enforcements Database. Another bill Crist signed will require sex offenders to register their phone numbers with the state. House Democrat Marty Kiar sponsored the legislation and said the new law will also help the state keep a closer eye on online predators.

It requires individuals to register as sexual offenders or sexual predators if they solicit unlawful sexual activity with a minor over the internet, the telephone or by other means and they go meet the minor for the purpose of engaging in that activity, said Kiar.

Another bill Crist signed Tuesday would require people who are involved in multiple car wrecks to take driving courses.
