    Chelsea's Law gets governor's signature

    SAN DIEGO -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation Thursday to put some sex offenders in prison for life, following a bittersweet ceremony for family and friends of a 17-year-girl who was killed after being abducted while running less than seven months ago.

    Chelsea's Law is named for Chelsea King, who was killed by 31-year-old convicted child molester John Gardner. He was sentenced to life in prison in May after pleading guilty to murdering Chelsea and 14-year-old Amber Dubois.

    "Because of Chelsea, California's children will be safer. Because of Chelsea, this never has to happen again," said Schwarzenegger, an early backer of the legislation.

    Remembering Chelsea King

    We welcome Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s signing Thursday of Chelsea’s Law – an ambitious measure that will toughen how California deals with violent sex offenders who target minors, reform how authorities monitor sex criminals after their release from prison and make many other needed improvements.

    But Chelsea King deserves to be remembered for much more than the law named after her. The Poway High School senior who was raped and murdered by convicted sex offender John Gardner III in February was an extraordinary young woman – an honor student who volunteered as a peer counselor, a cross-country runner who also played French horn in the school wind symphony and the San Diego Youth Symphony, a positive, cheerful, warm 17-year-old who collected friends effortlessly.

    “Honestly, I don’t know how she could have been a better person,” said teacher Teri Barker-Ball in one of many heartfelt tributes paid to Chelsea at a March 13 memorial service at Poway High’s football stadium that drew more than 5,000 people.
