The Project

My project focuses on helping sex offenders navigate the complicated set of lifelong restrictions they face as a result of their convictions. The major focus of my work is on residency restrictions, which apply to all sex offenders in Florida regardless of their risk of re-offending. Since almost all sex offender treatment experts agree that these laws contribute to many factors that lead to recidivism, it is crucial to offenders and the public that these laws be changed. Perpetual punishment with no purpose has no place in a democracy.
