TN District Attorney Generals Want Law Changes
District Attorney Generals in Tennessee want law changes concerning the upcoming legislative session. They want the ability to prosecute an alleged serial child sex abuser in a single trial and increase sentences for those convicted of aggravated child neglect and attempted first-degree murder. Their legislative agenda pushes for the ability to prosecute even in multiple jurisdictions. Current state laws make such cases time consuming and put added strain on victims and families during the process. They also want to increase the minimum amount of time that prisoners must serve before becoming eligible for parole especially felony convictions like attempted first-degree murder and aggravated child neglect. Other legislative priorities include laws that would allow more effective prosecution for prescription drug trafficking and selling synthetic drugs. Prosecutors want to establish criminal proceedings against defendants identified through DNA, even though their actual identities are not known at the time the charges were filed. Itís believed that this practice would decrease the possibility of a sex offender or violent criminal escaping prosecution. (bg)
