ORLANDO, Fla. — Some Florida educators could face a third-degree felony if they don’t comply with a new state law.
It’s all part of changes under House Bill 1467.
The Florida Department of Education said an educator can’t have any book, pamphlet, magazine or printed material that contains explicit descriptions of sexual excitement or sexual conduct that’s harmful to minors.
Many educators feel that this sends the wrong message.
The new state law also requires some staffers to complete training.
Attorneys in Florida say a third-degree felony can be punishable by up to five years in prison.
