Sex Offender Village

Produced by

In Florida’s remote sugar cane country, there’s a place where sex offenders can live without violating the state’s strict sex offender residency requirements.  It’s called Miracle Village, and is the subject of a documentary by filmmakers Lisa F. Jackson and David Feige. They tell host Dick Gordon that they’ve learned that many of the people on sex offender registries shouldn’t have to bear that label, but no one will stand up for them.
