Florida gets tough on child predators.

Jacksonville, FL -- Florida Gov. Jeb Bush signed the Jessica Lunsford Act which requires those who prey on children under 12 to be sentenced to a minimum mandatory 25 years in prison. If and when released, they are to be tracked for life. The law requires people convicted of certain sex crimes against children a lifetime of tracking by global positioning satellite once they're outside of prison. The bill also requires more monitoring of people convicted of molesting older children. It also provides for GPS tracking of sex offenders who violate probation.
