FLORIDA LAW KEEPS HI-TECH EYE ON SICKOS FOR LIFE
Governor Jeb Bush yesterday signed a law imposing tougher penalties on child molesters and requiring many of those released from prison to wear satellite tracking devices for the rest of their lives. The measure gives Florida one of the toughest child-sex laws in the nation. The Jessica Lunsford Act was quickly drafted after Jessica's death was discovered in March, and was pushed through by lawmakers outraged that the man accused of killing her was a registered sex offender. It passed both the Senate and House unanimously. The law requires sentences of 25 years to life in prison for sexual predators convicted of molesting children less than 12 years of age. Convicts serving less than life would wear the device.
