Assemblymember Mary Salas on Ensuring the Protection of Children from Violent Sexual Predators:
"Chelsea's Law will do just that -- protect our kids. It will fix the flaws in the one-strike law that was passed two decades ago. It will fix the flaws that allowed a sexual predator to take the lives of two young girls in San Diego County -- Chelsea King and Amber Dubois. It will fix the flaws that have cost the lives of many children throughout our state. We can't afford to maintain the status quo. For most of these predators, there is no rehabilitation. We must put them away so that they no longer can threaten or harm our children."
