Florida Megan's Law
Being named after Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was passed into federal law in 1995. Megan's Law requires that each state
put a method in place for notifying the general public when a sexual offender is located in their area.
Megan was merely seven years old when a prior sexual offender that lived accross the street from her family, abducted, violently rapped, and killed her. It was concluded that if her family or other residents in the communtiy had known that a repeated sexual offender was residing in their community, this assult would have been thwarted. With those thoughts, the U.S. Congress passed the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", nicknamed Megan's Law, without any protests.
Ever since the law has been passed, Florida has made it a point to protect its public by providing the most current information regarding convicted sex offenders and their current residency. The legislation has proven that while sex crimes are still a occuring in the U.S., crimes committed by previous offenders are on a decline.
