The Ohio Senate passes Jessica’s Law +

Posted By on March 31, 2006

In a bipartisan vote, Ohio Senate Republicans and Democrats passed a version of “Jessica’s Law,” which mandates prison terms of 25 years to life for the rape of a child under 13. The bill which heads to the house also includes 15 years to life for the attempted rape of a minor and mandatory prison terms for offenders convicted of sexual batter against a child under 13. I expect that the House members will quickly approve and send to the governor. There was also a third component of this newly passed bill and it deals with child abuse. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)


Interestingly ‘loud’ reporting just a week prior to this bill by Bill O’Reilly on a recent case in Franklin county by Judge John Connor, sentence a 19 count sex offender to house arrest. (see last weeks post) It does seem that Mr. O’Reilly’s uproar was well timed to put pressure on legislators???
