State Senator Says She’s Cracking Down On Sex Offenders

Posted: Monday, June 21st, 2010 at 6:24 am

Last week State Senator Becky Schmitz said in a statement that she’s cracking down on sex offenders in Iowa by using advice from local law enforcement.  Schmitz says she’s helped close a loophole in Iowa law that will allow police to catch and prosecute “predators who are trying to entice” children into sexual abuse, an improvement she describes as catching predators before abuse “actually occurs”.  State Senator Schmitz says she worked with civil liberties groups for the new legislation to ensure the law did not break the “balancing act” of individual rights.
