Description

WFLA investigates house arrest. In Florida, criminals with more then one violent conviction are not eligible for house arrest. But in one year 58 criminals with two or more violent convictions were sent back into neighborhoods instead of to jail. One man who had 10 violent convictions was put under house arrest and went back to live with his 15-year-old "room mate" whom he was sentenced for abusing.
