State Assembly Passes "Chelsea's Law"

The measure would lock up the most violent sexual predators for life. GOP Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher wrote the bill after San Diego-area teenager Chelsea King was raped and murdered in a local park. A convicted sex offender pleaded guilty to the crime. Republican Assemblyman Steve Knight says “Chelsea’s Law” sends an important message:
 
“What Assemblymember Fletcher is doing is saying to the State of California is that we believe there are crimes that you’re done. That’s it, that’s the end. You’re behind bars and you don’t get to come back into our community.”

The bill requires lifetime GPS monitoring for some sex offenders. It also bans them from visiting places where kids congregate, like parks. Governor Schwarzenegger supports Chelsea’s law and says he will sign it if it makes it to his desk. The bill moves next to the Senate.
