Sex offenders allowed back into mobile park home

WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

Last night WMNF aired a report on how residents in Palm River had complained to Hillsborough County Commissioners about sex predators living in their community.

Commissioners said they would do what they could to shut down the mobile home park run by Florida Justice Transitions, a Pinellas county based nonprofit that provides counseling and housing for sex offenders. Commissioners reacted after hearing comments from the public.

Hours after residents spoke out, the county gave the men 24 hours to leave the area, citing an ordinance prohibiting sex offenders from being within 300 feet of a place frequented by children. But that action was reversed today.
