The state of Florida is about to get much tougher on sex offenders who prey on children.
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush signed the Jessica Lunsford Act into law Monday.
The Lunsford Bill was drafted after nine-year-old Jessica’s body was found in March.
The law requires 25-year minimum prison terms for people convicted of certain sex crimes against children and lifetime tracking by global positioning satellite if they eventually get out of prison.
The new requirement only affects people convicted in the future.
It does have a provision that provides for additional tracking of some sex offenders currently on the street.
