Florida Megan's Law
Named after Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was passed into federal law in 1995. Megan's Law makes it mandatory for each state
develop a procedure for notifying the public when a sexual offender is relocated into their area.
Megan was just seven years old when a previously convicted sexual offender that lived accross the street from her family, abducted, rapped, and killed her. It was decided that had her family or other community members had known that a repeated sexual predator was residing in their neighborhood, this crime would've been avoided. With that in mind, the U.S. Congress passed the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", also known as Megan's Law, without any objections.
Since the law has been enacted, Florida has strived to protect its public by providing the most current information regarding previous sex offenders and their place of residence. The legislation has proven that though sexual offenses are still a occuring in the United States, crimes committed by prior offenders are on a decline.
The information accesible through the enactment of Megan's Law has continued to be a signifcant advantage in keeping one's family guarded from the risk of sexual offenses.
