Florida County DMV Goofs And Labels Innocent Woman As Sexual Predator (PHOTOS)

A woman who had recently moved to Clermont, Florida didn't understand why she started getting strange stares from clerks and bank tellers. She couldn't figure out why people started treating her differently. When she went to Walt Disney World, the 'happiest place on Earth,' a hotel refused to let her stay. Disney wouldn't even let her into the park.

She took a closer look at her license and was horrified to find the reason for all the mysterious incidents. Across the bottom of her license, the words 'sexual predator' were printed.

The unnamed woman, who had never been convicted of any sex crimes, quickly figured out what happened. When she moved from Virginia to Florida, she went to the Department of Motor Vehicles to switch over her license. She asked the clerk at the DMV to mark down that she was an organ donor. Using the drop-down box on the computer, he marked the wrong thing.

The sad part is, once you're labeled a 'sexual predator,' even if it's by accident, it's very difficult to get un-labeled.

According to John Phillips, an attorney in Jacksonville, he's seen it before. One of Phillips clients waited years to have the terrible label removed, and died before it actually happened. Phillips sees no reason for it.

"It's a severe problem," said Phillips. "It's a problem that a good it person with the state could correct."

Phillips must be an optimist. Even good people can have trouble untangling government office red tape.
