SECTION 926
Notice to victims of release of persons committed as sexually violent predators; notice to Department of Corrections and Parole Commission.
F.S. 394.926
394.926 Notice to victims of release of persons committed as sexually violent predators; notice to Department of Corrections and Parole Commission.
(1) As soon as is practicable, the department shall give written notice of the release of a person committed as a sexually violent predator to any victim of the committed person who is alive and whose address is known to the department or, if the victim is deceased, to the victim’s family, if the family’s address is known to the department. Failure to notify is not a reason for postponement of release. This section does not create a cause of action against the state or an employee of the state acting within the scope of the employee’s employment as a result of the failure to notify pursuant to this part.
(2) If a sexually violent predator who has an active or pending term of probation, community control, parole, conditional release, or other court-ordered or postprison release supervision is released from custody, the department must immediately notify the Department of Corrections’ Office of Community Corrections in Tallahassee. The Parole Commission must also be immediately notified of any releases of a sexually violent predator who has an active or pending term of parole, conditional release, or other postprison release supervision that is administered by the Parole Commission.
