State Rep Wants 'Caylee's Law' for Okla. (Jul 06, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY - State Rep. Paul Wesselhoft (R-Moore) says after receiving numerous emails and a petition following the not guilty verdict in the Casey Anthony trial, he plans to introduce legislation in 2012 that would require parents or guardians to quickly notify authorities of a missing or dead child.

On the Senate side, Joe Dorman tweeted that he and Senator Ralph Shortey are discussing a similar piece of legislation.

Wesselhoft says a so-called ‘Caylee’s Law’ would provide a time limit for a parent to report a missing or dead child, 48 and 24 hours respectively, with the violation being a maximum misdemeanor or felony.

He says Oklahomans don’t want to experience a situation like what happened in the Anthony case.
