More Jail Time for Child Pornographers

Detectives say it's incredibly easy to find people online seeking kids for sex. What's tougher is sending them to prison. That could change soon with a bill waiting for Governor Jeb Bush's signature that could ensure more prison time for child pornographers.

Judges use a mathematical formula which includes points to determine sentences for felons. The bill would assign more points for people who use the Internet to lure children, send them pornography or transmit child pornography. As it stands now, people would have to be caught more than once to ensure a prison sentence.

Representative Dick Kravitz hopes the bill he sponsored will lock some people up who would otherwise be allowed to stay free. It's a law investigators say is needed to fight an enormous problem. Florida police are arresting adults who try to lure children online almost every day.
