Chelsea S Law

Chelsea S Law, Any person convicted of a violent sexual offense against a child in California will receive life in prison without parole as of Thursday, after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the “Law of Chelsea.”
The law was named for 17-years old, Chelsea King, who was killed earlier this year by a registered sex offender also admitted killing 14-year-old Amber Dubois.
“Because Chelsea, children in California will be safer,” said Schwarzenegger. “Because Chelsea, this should never happen again.”
The unanimous adoption of the bill by legislators from California was a rare show of bipartisanship, driven by his outrage at the killing King and Dubois. It includes an emergency clause, which became effective immediately.
“Very few things bring Democrats and Republicans these days, but his daughters,” Schwarzenegger told his parents before signing the bill at a ceremony in San Diego.
Kelly King, the mother of Chelsea, spoke after the governor. He thanked the legislators to inspire “our next generation of voters by their actions.”
“He has shown what is right and good and sound decision-making in government,” said King.
The bill also makes those convicted of certain sex crimes against minors on probation for life.
Registered Sex Offenders John Gardner III admitted in March to kill King and Dubois. A few days after King’s body was found, Gardner led the authorities to the remains of Dubois, who had been missing for over a year. He was sentenced in April to three consecutive life terms without parole for the murders and the attack of a broker in a deal that spared him the death penalty.
