Keep in mind that below are pieces of legislation that the CPIU have endorsed or written to better protect children from child predators. However, if you wish, you can see a page that we’ve constructed which breaks down laws that change state by state. For example: Ages of Consent, Enticement of a Minor laws, and things that really just change from state to state.

Carlie’s Law – Click here for more information
We’re standing behind a new bill that I believe every American citizen in this forum should do something about.
I think that it is safe to say that we all would agree that criminals get off to easily with sex offending crimes. This bill, also known as Carlie’s Law will change a lot. I know most of you will remember Carlie, the young girl who was abducted from the car wash by a man who should have never been on the streets in the first place due to his very recent encounters with the law. But due to a huge failure on our government’s part, he was on the streets and was able to commit a crime which will forever change the lives of Carlie and her friends/family. The worst thing about it is, is that these crimes take place every day and everyday another monster is released way before he is even close to rehabilitated.
What I am asking of each and everyone of you is simple. I want you to send an email to your representative stating the need for their support in this bill. As of now it has 27 supporters in the house, both republicans and democrats are on that list of 27. To make this even easier for you all. I have attached a copy of the letter that I sent to my representative, though you can most absolutely write your own. To view the full bill here is a link to an acrobate reader file that will show you the entire proposed bill. http://carlieslaw.org/bill.pdf – to view a breakdown of what the bill really says without all of the legal lingo that some people cannot understand, our friend Phoebus from Perverted-Justice has made this summary. You can view it at http://www.cpiu.us/review.php
The house has a web-site set up that allows you to contact your representative at ease just by typing in your name and zip code, then follows a text box of what you would like to say to them, that is where you’d drop in the letter urging them to promote this legislation. The web-site to contact your representative is: http://www.house.gov/writerep/

MAKE SURE TO REPLACE MY NAME WITH YOUR NAME
Hello, my name is Michael Pack and am one of your constituents. I was reading an article in the news about a new bill being passed, it is house bill 4150, also known as “Carlie’s Law”. This bill makes it tougher for repeat criminals to get off so easily. The bill is being promoted by a lot of child safety advocates, particularly the guys that run the Amber Alert, Code Amber, Ernie Allen, the president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and Carlie’s dad. The bill is named after a young girl named Carlie, I’m sure you remember the video of the girl being abducted from the car wash just a few months ago. Well, the man who did this raped a two year old boy and was sentenced to only two and one half years for this unspeakable crime. After his release, he committed another sexual assault, followed by a short incarceration and then parole. After violating his parole, the judge ordered him to weekend jail. If this bill had been in place, Carlie would still be alive today.
The three leaders of this bill are Katherine Harris (R-FL), Nick Lampson (D-TX) and Marsha Blackburn’s (R-TN). However, altogether the bill officially has 27 sponsors altogether. Though, you are not one of them. I am sure you just have not heard this side of the story. I sincerely hope that you will join on with the 27, to bring it to 28. I thank you for your time and please let me know if you will join this coalition against repeat criminals.
School Faculty Accountability
– In 20 states, it is not a crime for school employees—including teachers, administrators, and coaches—to have sex with students aged 16 and over.
– In 23 states, it is not a crime for school employees to have sex with students aged 17 and over.
– In 45 states, it is not a crime for school employees to have sex with students aged 18 and over.
Contact your school district, find out if your state is one of these that allow this type of behavior. Find out what type of precautions are being made, and ask questions on how they deal with these types of situations. If your state is one of these states, contact your local representative/legislator and inform them of this, then push them to pass a law which would change this and raise it to the standard of no sexual relations with a student at their place of work.
The Debbie Smith Act
Do you feel safe in your own kitchen? So did Debbie Smith, on a quiet Friday afternoon in Williamsburg, Virginia. She had completed the day’s chores, and her husband, off-duty police officer Robert Smith, was upstairs, taking a nap. But Smith’s idyll was shattered by the man who broke into her house, blindfolded her and forced her outside, into the woods behind her house, where he raped her repeatedly. At the end of the nightmare, Smith’s attacker told her: “Remember, I know where you live, and I will come back and kill you if you tell anyone.”
That was on March 3, 1989. Thanks to her husband, Smith did all the things a rape victim should do: She immediately went to the authorities, who collected what’s known as a rape kit — samples of fluid and hair left by the rapist, which can reveal his DNA (or unique genetic makeup).
Then the waiting began. It took six long years for Smith’s rape kit to be analyzed, during which time she lived in constant fear. Finally, her rapist’s DNA was identified — and matched with a blood sample from a prison database. Norman Jimmerson, a convict who was already serving time for another crime, was convicted of raping Smith and sentenced to two life terms plus 25 years in prison. He will never get parole.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, a woman is raped every six minutes in this country, and many rapists commit this crime eight to 10 times before they are caught. That means that, at any given moment, there are literally millions of rape survivors waiting to hear that their attacker has been apprehended. Smith waited six agonizing years for justice to be served. Other women aren’t even that lucky. Many nurses and police officers don’t know what to do — either with evidence or with the victim herself — when a woman comes in and says, “I’ve been raped.” Even if authorities collect a rape kit, it may be poorly handled and deemed inadmissible in court, or simply left to collect dust until the statute of limitations to prosecute the rape has passed. The Justice Department reports that there are approximately 150,000 to 500,000 rape kits nationwide that have yet to be analyzed because law enforcement officials are short on both the funds and the skilled personnel necessary to process the kits and match the evidence collected to existing DNA samples of known criminals.
A new piece of legislation, named after Debbie Smith, the Debbie Smith Act/DNA Sexual Assault Justice Act of 2003, seeks to remedy this sad state of affairs. With sponsors such as Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Mark Green (R-WI) and Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) and Maria Cantwell (D-WA), the Debbie Smith Act/DNA Sexual Assault Justice Act of 2003 calls for $250 million in grants to help make the investigation and prosecution of rape cases more efficient. States would use the funds to devise a standardized rape kit, maintain a national database of DNA records and create programs to train specialized nurses to collect evidence that will always be admissible in court. Taken together, these initiatives could help solve the nation’s enormous backlog of unsolved rape cases.
“Each one of these stalled cases represents women’s lives,” says Debbie Smith. “Many women are paralyzed after an attack because their rapist is still out there, and you never know if he’s going to come back.” Smith’s emotional testimony moved many Washington lawmakers to tears — and action. “We can never take away the pain and anguish that these victims endure, but we can work to fully support the health care professionals, law enforcement and other first responders who assist victims in the critical aftermath period following the assaults,” says Rodham Clinton. “It is vital that these professionals are sufficiently trained…so that victims can draw comfort from the greater assurance that the perpetrators of the crimes committed against them will be apprehended and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
The Amber Alert
The Amber Alert is a public alert system which will inform you of any missing child in your area. Not only are there signs over interstates and highly populated roads, television stations and radio stations will interrupt normal broadcasting and alert you of the child which has been kidnapped or in danger of bodily harm from another person.
Fortunately this plan was recently federally passed in every state.
