    Florida:Crist signs child molester, pot grow house bills

    Child molesters 18 years or older will go to prison for life if convicted more than once of molesting a child under 12 as a result of a new law (HB 85) that goes into effect July 1.
    It will modify the 2005 Jessica Lunsford Act that now has a minimum sentence of 25 years. It permits a maximum of life for a first or subsequent offense of intentionally touching the breasts, genital area or buttocks of a child in a lewd or lascivious manner.
