Some Sex Offenders Hand Out Candy on Halloween -- And It's Legal
Published November 1st, 2013
GAINESVILLE -- It's illegal in Florida for sex offenders on parole or probation to distribute any candy on Halloween, dress up in costume, or even turn on a front porch light.
But for those offenders no longer under supervision by the state, those rules don't apply -- meaning it's perfectly legal for some registered sex offenders to hand out candy on Halloween.
As TV20's Trent Kelly reports, that's not sitting well with some parents who already go out of their way to make sure their kids stay safe while trick-or-treating on Halloween.
