sex offenders registry

Cyd Hoskinson / WJCT News

Jacksonville has the state’s highest rate of registered sex offenders or predators without a permanent address.

Registered sex offenders could soon face some admissions roadblocks at Florida State College at Jacksonville.

A new search feature on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement website allows users to search which college a registered sex offender attends. FSCJ had the highest number of sex offenders enrolled in the state.

The college has an open admissions policy which means anyone who applies can get in, regardless of grade point average, test scores, arrest record or sex offender status.
