New Law in South Florida Regarding Sex Offenders

Davie has recently finalized a new law that will put in place restrictions of landlords in renting to sex offenders or sex predators. Those in violation of the newly authorized law can be jailed or fined, according to the Town Council. Florida Law states that a 2500 foot buffer must be in place between where a sex offender can live and everywhere children congregate, such as school bus stops, parks and playgrounds.

The new Davie law will force landlords to be subject to fines up to $500 and/or 60 days in jail on first violation. Multiple violations step up to $1000 and/or a year in jail. All sex offenders regardless of date of conviction are subject to the new law and will be dealt accordingly by law enforcement.

Sex crimes are one of the most saught after and heavily prosecuted by many state departments. An experienced lawyer is required and one with the utmost knowledge of case law and state court systems is even more heavily needed in such a situation.
