"...said J. Alex Villalobos, former Florida Senate majority leader who shepherded the Jimmy Ryce Act through the state legislature.
The Florida law, which has been replicated across the country, cleared the way for imprisoned sexual offenders to be held after their release if found likely to repeat their crimes.
At the time "if you knew somebody was going to commit a crime there was nothing you could do about it," Villalobos said."
The law is irrelevant to the case that it is named after as Juan Carlos Chavez had no prior criminal record. What a stupid knee jerk, feel good law, that is.
