Senator Ball Pushes for Bill in Response to Death of Florida Toddler
Albany, N.Y. – (07/08/11) – In the wake of a controversial acquittal that shocked the nation, and left many wondering if Casey Anthony got away with murder, Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson) is calling for the creation of Caylee’s Law, a bill that would make it a crime for parents or caregivers who fail to report the death of a child.
State Senator Greg Ball (R, C - Patterson) is calling for the creation of Caylee’s Law, a bill which would require caregivers to report the death or disappearance of a child to a police officer or law enforcement agency as soon as reasonably possible.
One of the most shocking aspects of the recently concluded Casey Anthony trail was that no one, including Anthony, reported Caylee Anthony missing or dead until a month after her mysterious disappearance.
Following the brutal murder of a 8-year-old Brooklyn boy and the high-profile Casey Anthony trial, Senate Republicans introduced a bill today that would create a new crime punishing people who kill a child with life behind bars.
