DeSantis Proposes Bill Making Child Rapists Face Life In Prison Or Death Penalty, Cracking Down On Drug Crime – By Ryan Saavedra (Daily Wire) / Jan 27, 2023
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced legislation this week that will dramatically increase the punishments faced by child rapists and drug criminals.
The governor’s new legislative proposal is aimed at improving Florida’s “50-year record low crime rate” through a variety of measures that take on woke initiatives like abolishing cash bail and increasing the penalties for serious crimes, especially those that target children.
“Other states endanger their citizens by making it easier to put criminals back on the street,” DeSantis said. “Here in Florida, we will to continue to support and enact policies to protect our communities and keep Floridians safe. Florida will remain the law and order state.”
Among the top items included in DeSantis’ agenda are reducing the number of jurors required to sentence a person to death, punishing fentanyl traffickers with mandatory life sentences for targeting children, strengthening Florida’s bail laws, making child rapists face either life in prison or the death penalty, and increasing penalties against those who attempt sex crimes.
