DEADLY PEDOPHILE SENTENCED TO DEATH
Howard Steven Ault, 33, a convicted pedophile and killer was sentenced to death Monday for the murder of two young sisters he strangled after he raped one of them in 1996. This case led to a new Florida law expanding public access to information on convicted sexual predators. Ault, convicted August 11th of first degree murder in the deaths of DeAnn Mu'min, 11, and her 7 year old sister, Alicia Jones, was also convicted on two counts of capital sexual battery, kidnapping and aggravated child abuse. As a result of his case, legislators passed a bill in 1997 tightening loopholes on public listings of registered sexual predators and adding several new measures, including providing photos of convicted sexual offenders on request.
