Florida sex predators are going free only to go on the attack again.
That's the finding of an 8-month long Sun Sentinel investigation.
The law requires the state to evaluate sex offenders before they leave prison to determine if they are too dangerous to be on the streets.
But an investigation by the Sun Sentinel finds screening safeguards aren't working.
Metro Editor Dana Banker says nearly 600 rapists and child molesters who set free have been convicted of a new sex crime over the past 14 years.
The law is named in honor of South Florida's Jimmy Ryce who was 9 when he was abducted and murdered in 1995.
The 3-Day sex predator series launches Sunday. It tells the stories of the suspects the state failed to stop and the women and children who they attacked.
