    FL - Juan Chavez sentenced to death for '95 murder of 9yo Jimmy Ryce

    http://www.nbc6.net/news/18533155/de...=headlineclick
    snip
    MIAMI -- The mother of a 9-year-old boy whose 1995 murder received national attention has died from a heart attack.

    A spokeswoman for Jimmy Ryce's family says his mother, 66-year-old Claudine Ryce, died Wednesday.

    A state law bearing the boy's name keeps sexual predators in custody even after they finish their sentences if they are considered a danger.

    I had never heard of Jimmy before. What a nightmare for the parents to live through. The only consolation is that she's with Jimmy now; where no one can hurt them again.

    FL - Juan Chavez sentenced to death for '85 murder of 9yo Jimmy Ryce

    20 years is Waaaay too long. Should have checked this guy out back in the 90's.


    "TALLAHASSE, Fla. — The man who raped and murdered 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce almost 20 years ago is scheduled to be executed Feb. 12.

    Gov. Rick Scott signed a death warrant Thursday for 46-year-old Juan Carlos Chavez, who kidnapped, raped then dismembered the boy on Sept. 11, 1995.

    ...Lawmakers later passed the Jimmy Ryce Act, which allows the civil commitment of dangerous sexual predators once they have completed their prison terms."

    Agree, it's been far too long for the parents to wait for justice for Jimmy.

    His bill passing is one of the best things that ever happened for child victims in Florida. It was appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and they upheld it. Now more states have the same law, keeping predators off the streets.

    "the civil commitment of dangerous sexual predators once they have completed their prison terms." I think if this worked, there would not be so many repeat offenders. How many times do these creeps get to prove they are a "sexually violent predator" These types will never change!!!!!

    This man is an absolute monster and his execution is long overdue. I can't imagine the horror Jimmy experienced and the pain his parents endured. God bless them.

    He's not breathing anymore.

    A man has been executed in Florida for raping and killing a 9-year-old boy 18 years ago, a death that spurred the victim's parents to press nationwide for stronger sexual predator confinement laws.

    I'm profoundly impressed with the dignity and courage Jimmy's parents have shown since this happened. Hopefully their hearts are a tad bit lighter since this monster is no longer on this Earth.

    I'm proud that little Jimmy tried to escape, as terrified as I'm sure he was. I wish more kidnap victims would try to fight back.

    Another crime here is that it took 18 years to execute that POS. Ridiculous.
