Description

"Residents of day care homes and centers in Florida are supposed to be screened for felony records. If the records are serious, the home or center is denied a license - presumably protecting the children from the threat." After being prompted by the story of a convicted felon dealing drugs out of a day care home, WKMG-TV uncovers a shocking problem in Florida's Department of Children and Families. Using computer-assited reporting WKMG found dozens of criminals living in day care homes unbeknownst to the state of Florida.
