    An eight-month Sun Sentinel investigation into the Jimmy Ryce law has uncovered shocking failures. Florida's safeguards have broken down at every stage, setting hundreds of rapists and child molesters free to harm again.

    State legislators promise to overhaul sex offender laws in response to a Sun Sentinel investigation last week that found Florida has failed to stop hundreds of rapists and child molesters from attacking again.
