A new Florida law will help judges keep repeat violent offenders behind bars.
The law clarifies that suspects who are arrested while on probation or under house arrest can be refused bond by a court.
The law is named after a slain Florida police officer.
“It's heart-wrenching to see what happens to the families and to the communities and to the other law enforcement officers that have worked with them,” the governor said.
The Andrew Widman Act was named after a Fort Myers police officer who was gunned down in 2008 while responding to a domestic violence call involving an offender who had an outstanding warrant.
Gov. Rick Scott signed the act into law Monday.
