Here is the Internal State Report provided to me by a colleague in Florida:

Excerpt:
An eight-month Sun Sentinel investigation published in August found nearly 1,400 sex offenders reviewed under the law had been re-arrested on sex charges in Florida. The state has screened a total of more than 31,000 offenders.
The review team said that represented a reoffense rate of just 4 percent.

The reviewers also examined a state study and the program's own research on predators who were recommended for confinement but later released. The reoffense rates ranged from 4 to 10 percent.

Those rates are surprisingly low for "a group thought to be extremely dangerous sexual predators,'' the report said.
