Statement by Florida Chief Financial Officer Gallagher regarding Jessica Lunsford Act

5/2/2005

CONTACTO: 
Tami Torres
(850) 413-2842
  
"As the father of a six-year old, nothing is more important to me than the protection of Florida's children, and I am pleased that Governor Bush signed the Jessica Lunsford Act into law earlier today. Senator Nancy Argenziano and Representatives Charlie Dean and Everett Rice deserve the gratitude of all parents for their sponsorship of this important legislation, and I applaud both chambers for their quick action on this bill.
 
"Those who sexually abuse children deserve no mercy from our criminal justice system and this bill is a good step toward incapacitating those criminals most likely to harm the children of our state.
 
"On this day of accomplishment on behalf of Florida's children, our thoughts and prayers remain with Jessica's family."
