The Civil Commitment for Sexually Violent Predators Treatment and Care Act, enacted in response to the kidnapping, rape, and murder of 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce by sex offender Juan Chavez in 1995, is federal legislation that provides, among other things, a civil commitment procedure for the long term treatment of sexually violent predators.
The Act defines certain sex offenderssexually violent predatorsas having a mental abnormality and seeks to have these offenders involuntarily and indefinitely committed to an appropriate secure facility for treatment, but only after the offenders have already served their criminal sentences in jail. Moreover, it applies only to persons who have already been convicted of a sexually violent crime. Although the Florida Legislature passed the Jimmy Ryce Act unanimously, the Act is controversial to courts, academia, and civil rights activists because it raises constitutional concerns.
