Jessica's Law Plus

I will introduce legislation changing Jessica's Law to allow for the death penalty. Currently, Jessica's law involves sexual crimes against children. A first conviction will have a minimum sentence of 25 years without parole. A second conviction will get life. My bill will allow the prosecution the death penalty option in second convictions. By the way, the last time SC executed a non murderer was in 1972. The condemned man was convicted of rape.
