New Delhi: In Florida, released sex offenders face harsh restrictions on where they can live.  


One man's answer was Miracle Village, a ‘leper colony' that now houses more than 100 former prisoners.

Miracle Village lies deep in a sea of green. This is sugar cane country, south Florida. At the edge of the everglades, and over two miles from the nearest town, around 200 people live in the small, neat bungalows.

More than 100 of them are registered sex offenders - people who were found guilty, and have usually served a prison sentence, for a sex crime.
