Oklahoma Hoping To Pass "Caylee's Law" Next Year

Twitter uses and the general public aren't the only ones who are outraged at the outcome of Casey Anthony's murder trial. Some people in the judicial system are just as floored as we are about Casey walking free from all of this and one lawmaker in Oklahoma hopes to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Rep. Paul Wesselhoft announced yesterday that he plans to introduce a law called the "Caylee's law" in his state requiring parents to swiftly report the death or disappearance of a child in Oklahoma's 2012 legislative session. In his statement, he explained that many of his constituents thought Casey "escaped true justice," and he wants to prevent that from ever happening again. He added:

"It is unconscionable for a parent to delay notifying the authorities of the death of their child. Most parents would immediately notify authorities if their child had gone missing. Any delay could endanger the life of the child and, in the case of a child's death, make it that much harder to collect evidence. I think the actions of Caylee's mother were reprehensible … Violation of this law would be a maximum misdemeanor or a felony conviction. Oklahomans do not want to experience a situation such as what occurred in the Caylee Anthony case."

We're behind this 100%! It's lunacy to think that this woman is going to walk away with only 6 day sentence for misinforming the police of her child's whereabouts and taking SO LONG to tell them she was missing in the first place. How could she have gone an hour without calling the police to find her child? How?! HOW?!

    This will be a good law. At least this little girls death may bring some changes in policy/law.

    I am behind this 1000% ….. But, Perez, Caylee WAS NOT MISSING according to the defense. OK!!… so stop with this questioning as to why she didn't report her missing. She was never missing.

    Please encourage your readers to go to www.change.org to sign the petition to get Caylee's Law passed in all states! It would be wonderful if at least some good came out of the horrific situation!

    The law also applies to "accidental" deaths that are not reported immediately!



  5. 5

    A Maryland lawmaker has said she will introduce the same kind of law.

    Can they bring a civil suit against Casey, like they did to O.J.? Everyone knows she killed her kid, just like everyone knew O.J. killed Nicole Brown and her friend…wasn't his name Ron Goldblum, or something like that?

    It's already against the law not to report a death. Derp.

    Re: Hun – The point is though that she knew this whole time that her daughter was dead and should be responsible for that at least. She lead everyone to believe lie after lie and honestly it is sad that someone could take a loved one and bury them and not give that human being a proper funeral.

    What kills me is that now that Casey has been acquitted, WHO PAYS FOR CAYLEE'S MURDER?? Is no one going to be held responsible, did a ghost commit this crime?!? I'm 100% behind this law, because if Casey didn't commit this murder, she's still not innocent in all of this. But I wish there was more justice for Caylee than just a law. How about we punish her killer? Or find the truth?

    Yay! Oklahoma! We're good for something! lol But really. I hope Casey gets what is coming to her.

    I'm kind of sick of Mario's holier than thou attitude…so judgmental and annoying. stick to what you do best - licking Gaga's ass while giving Kim the donkey punch.

    Re: theslickest – yes, i understand, and I completley agree.



  13. 13

    MOST parents wouldn't hold off on reporting their children missing..

    Re: Klee538 – This would be a good thing to come out of this awful mess.
    I hope every state has a Caylee law in the future. This is all about Caylee and other innocent children.

    You ask 'how could she have gone an hour without calling the police to find her child? How?!
    HOW?!' Something was rotten in the state of Denmark, that's how; and hoping they'll figure it out given time.

    Mario, if you're going to report….report the whole story. These politicians who are going to introduce this law are doing so because a woman by the name of Michelle Crowder of Durant, Okla.. She started a petition on Change.Org to make it a federal crime to not report your child missing in a reasonable amount of time. Federal analystists think this may be unconstitution because these types of cases are are governed by states, not the governments. With over 325,000 signatures, state politicians are taking up the cause, because whatever you say, this child was "missing" and Casey said nothing about it for 30 days. (PS-If you want to get away with murder, report your child as abducted, and DON'T go partying). This bitch was guilty, guilty, guilty and hopefully she'll get what's coming to her and very soon. She better sleep with one eye open.

    Re: CatsClaw – Goldman…Ron Goldman.

    good for Oklahoma
    .
    it should become a National Law- not just state!

    There are laws against murdering people. Does that ever stop anyone from doing so? The high murder rates would lead you to think that answer is no. I love how every year once case comes along that gets people outraged/ They have all these thoughts, but never turn the thoughts into actions and the next case comes and we follow the same pattern. If you are looking for someone to blame…Blame the DA who went to trail before they have enough evidence. Blame the media for trying the case in the public. Do not blame the jury who followed the laws we have on the books. If people could be convicted based on thoughts alone we all would be serving life.

    I'd be delighted if they'd pass "Dahmer's Law" over these next 5 days. In honor of Casey. What a treat to the world if she weren't in it.
