Child protection rally and press conference in Annapolis with Mark Lunsford


I would like to thank Mark Lunsford for coming to Annapolis and Testifying on Child Predator Laws and helping to get HB 254 out of the House Judiciary Committee and Passed.  Thanks to everyone who also emailed in and called in to their Reps to help.  Under second degree rape of a minor under the age of 13, a convicted sex offender must now spend 15 years in prison without the opportunity for parole and no good time.  Now we need to get the Senate to pass the same bill.  Keep up the fight for our children, SB 622 must pass so we can have the bill signed into laws.

Child protection rally and press conference in Annapolis with Mark Lunsford

Citizens For Jessica’s Law is organizing a rally and press conference to welcome Mark Lunsford, father of murdered Jessica, to Maryland on Tuesday March 16. Mr. Lunsford is a torchbearer for efforts to protect children from child sexual predators.

Maryland is once again thrust into the national spotlight, disgracefully, because of the inactions of Delegate Vallario, Senator Frosh, and other legislators who refuse to protect our children from these monsters in order to cater to their Maryland Trial Lawyers Association interests. See backstory on Bill O’Reilly’s involvement here.

The rally and press conference begins at noon at Lawyers Mall in Annapolis. The rally is in advance of votes on 17 related bills that will be decided throughout the day, or in some cases, risk not being voted on at all. See article by Mark Newgent on Red Maryland.

Nancy Jacobs is sponsoring six bills, all but SB623 to be heard tomorrow:

SB170 Child Protection From Predators Act (eliminates diminution credits)
SB617 Plea Agreements – Elimination of Concurrent Sentencing for Child Sex Offenses
SB619 Elimination of Concurrent Sentencing for Child Sex Offenses
SB620 Diminution Credits and Parole (eliminates them)
SB622 Sex Offenses Against Children (sets mandatory 20 year sentence)
SB623 Monitoring with GPS
