AMBER HAGERMAN: TEXAS
Amber's Law, named for 9 year old Amber Hagerman of Texas, imposes a life-without-parole sentence for the murder of a child under 14 during a sexual assault, imposed on repeat offenders. The purpose of the act is to clearly provide for the death penalty in child sex abuse cases handled in the federal courts, requires life imprisonment for repeat (two time) sex offenders when cases are heard in federal court and to encourage states to do likewise and to provide for a nationwide system administered by the FBI to track sex offenders.
