Subject: Sex Offenders

Due to a series of loopholes in laws in several states, some convicted sex offenders are literally "slipping through the cracks," and avoiding being required to register as sex offenders. WPTV-TV first began to investigate the case of children's book author Ronald Eugene Schaaf, a convicted child sex offender living in Florida. From there, the station found that "thousands of sex offenders are living among us - anonymously." In the wake of the investigation, the state admitted mistakes, and Schaaf was forced to register as a sex offender, his publisher dropped him, and Florida State Senator Dave Aronberg introduced legislation to close the state's loopholes.
