Civil Rights Re-Revoked

December 10th, 2009 by flanews

Eleven former felons who mistakenly had their civil rights automatically restored had them taken away today.

Governor Charlie Crist and the state cabinet signed an order to revoke the felons rights. The mistake was discovered after a September audit of the state parole commission. Governor Charlie Crist says mistakes are going to happen but adds the important thing is it was caught and fixed.

Theres human error involved in a lot of things that happen and I know these people are trying to do the best that they can and sometimes mistakes occur when they do and we try to rectify them, said Crist.

While the 11 ex-felons had their rights revoked, several people who went in font of the clemency board got an early Christmas present: their civil rights.
