|Jessica's Law, if adopted, would mandate more stringent tracking of released sex offenders.|
The bill, if passed, would reduce Federal grant money to any U.S. State that doesn't conform its sex offender registration laws to the following:
* Require sex offenders who were convicted more than twice of failing to properly register as a sex offender to wear Global Positioning System devices on their ankles for five years following their release from prison, or for ten years for those deemed sexual predators, to better enable law enforcement personnel to track their whereabouts. Costs of tracking and monitoring offenders must be absorbed by each State.
States must mail sex offender registration forms at least twice per year, at random times, to verify registrants' addresses. Any registrants who do not respond within 10 days must be considered non-compliant.
The bill was introduced by U.S. Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite R-Florida.
This quiz is about the little girl for whom this bill was named, due to her horrific and senseless murder.
