Interstate Commissioner for Audlt Offender Supervision (ICAOS) Logo

Nominated: Felix Rosa / New York - March 7, 2018

On March 7, 2018 at 10:03am Florida DCA Tim Strickland emailed information to New York Parole DCA Felix Rosa regarding a New York Sex Offender that was transferred to Florida who on March 6, 2018 was arrested in Florida on new kidnapping and sex offenses against a child. FL advised NY that a full OVR would be submitted requesting NY to issue a warrant for the offender so under Florida Statutes the parolee could be held in custody until the disposition of the violation hearing was completed. FL acknowledged that the offender would not be available for retaking and would not be expecting NY to retake until after the disposition of the new Florida charges but needed to ensure that the offender could be held in custody due to the extreme public safety issue that he represented. 

NY DCA Rosa took quick action in contacting the offender's NY Parole Officer and the NY Parole Commission. At 10:37am, 34 minutes after receiving the information about the new charges, FL received a reply email from DCA Rosa advising that the NY Parole Violation Warrant had been issued and lodged with the Florida Sheriff’s Department who had the offender in custody. DCA Rosa's quick actions helped to ensure that this offender would remain in custody and that the public would be protected from this clear danger.
