Anti Murder Act Law and Legal Definition

The Anti Murder Act is a Florida law that requires violent felony offenders who violate probation to remain in jail until the court determines whether the individual poses a danger to the community. The law was passed under Governor Crist in 2007. In March 2007, the Department of Corrections developed a “Violent Felony Offender of Special Concern” Identification Guide and database program to display on the Florida Criminal Justice Network (CJNET) to assist courts and booking facilities in identifying offenders who are not to be released from custody pursuant to the Act.
