Sex Offender Housing is Complex
Our sex offender housing solutions are designed for those offenders convicted of sex crimes and persons subject to residency restrictions. Florida Statutes §775.215 and §948.30 outline the residency restrictions for persons convicted of certain sex offenses and states in part:
A person who has been convicted of a violation of s. 794.011, s. 800.04, s. 827.071, s. 847.0135(5), or s. 847.0145, in which the victim of the offense was less than 16 years of age, may not reside within 1,000 feet of any school, child care facility, park, or playground.
In addition, local governments may pass their own ordinances that could increase the “buffer zone” distance up to 2,500 feet. Some Florida counties have No Go Zones that ban offenders from entering into or remaining in established buffer zones. Condition Release (CRD) supervision include school bus stops to their list of “buffer zone” locations. And violating any of these restrictions could result in up to a third-degree felony.
Residency restrictions vary based on offense, adjudication date, supervision conditions, and local ordinances. It is an overwhelming challenge to know what restrictions you will have to comply with and then finding a suitable residence that meets those requirements.
