Sex offender monitoring law passes N.C. Senate
The state Senate gave final approval Tuesday to "Jessica's Law," which would impose tougher sentences on child predators, including lifetime monitoring.
Sen. David Hoyle (D, Gaston County) is the sponsor of the bill.
"You violate a child in a sexual manner and you've got no more rights, in my opinion," he said.
Once the bill is signed into law, it would be retroactive to August of 2006. Any sex offenders convicted after that time would be required to be monitored.
