Hurricane Irma: Pasco Cty sheriff to open shelter for sex offenders

Registered sex offenders who need to evacuate because of Hurricane Irma now have an option: The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office will set up a space for them in the shelter at Wiregrass Ranch High School in Wesley Chapel. “They need someplace to go just like any other citizen,” sheriff’s spokesman Kevin Doll said. Doll added that offenders would be “segregated away” from other citizens who might seek refuge at the high school at 2909 Mansfield Blvd., which Pasco County has listed as a shelter. (Source)
