Default FL lawmakers inspect juvie facilities

Quote:
After the Miami Herald published a six-part series on the state’s long-troubled juvenile justice system, lawmakers made surprise inspections of the detention centers in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. A legislator from Miami declared conditions there to be “horrible, horrific, deplorable.” In Broward, two girls showed visitors ant bites up and down their legs. The detainees said staff told them to use bleach and a rag for treatment.

Last week, Scott signed a law that allows members of the Legislature, prosecutors and public defenders to make surprise inspections of the facilities. That law was filed after lawmakers, touring South Florida detention centers in reaction to the Herald investigation, declared conditions to be “deplorable.”

The measure, which passed both the Senate and the House of Representatives unanimously, also includes an unusual provision: “The department may not unreasonably withhold permission to visit a facility ... from a person who gives sufficient evidence that he or she is a bona fide reporter or writer.”
