Hawaii state Senator Sam Slom, a Republican, is alone in his attempts to get “Jessica’s Law” on the “Aloha State’s” books. He appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” Thursday night to discuss the problems he’s encountered.
“Jessica’s Law” calls for more stringent tracking of sex offenders and minimum sentencing guidelines for those who commit such crimes against children. Idaho and New Jersey are very close to enacting the legislation, leaving just five holdouts — Hawaii is one of them, with the other four being Colorado, Illinois, New York and Vermont.
He described it as an “underlying cultural problem” working in combination with with “misplaced compassion for perpetuators.”
