Child Protection Bill Becoming State Law

Posted by wlpo on December 31, 2012

Fallout from the highly publicized Casey Anthony trial will be felt in Illinois starting tomorrow.

The Illinois House and Senate both unanimously passed the so-called “Caylee’s Law” which takes effect in the New Year.  Illinois and six other states are making it a felony for parents, guardians or caretakers who don’t report a missing child within 24 hours.  If a child is two years old or younger, you have an hour to report him or her missing to police.

The namesake of the law is Caylee Anthony, the two-year old daughter of Casey Anthony.  The mom was found not guilty of murder despite not reporting her daughter missing for a full month.
