Casey Anthony: Will We See “Caylee’s Law”?
Lawmakers outraged over Casey Anthony’s acquittal have responded by proposing “Caylee’s Laws” that would allow prosecutors to bring felony charges against parents who do not quickly report their children missing.
From the Associated Press:
The new measures were triggered, at least in part, by an online petition that had more than 700,000 signatures Friday. Some questioned whether a new law would do any good because the circumstances of the Anthony case were so rare, but lawmakers in at least a dozen or so states have already floated proposals reacting to the verdict.
“Casey Anthony broke new ground in brazenness,” said Florida state Rep. Scott Plakon, who is sponsoring the proposal in his state. “It’s very sad that we even need a law like this, but Casey Anthony just proved that we do as unfortunate as that is.”
