Ep59 - Murders That Created Laws

In this episode we're doing something a little different. We're discussing two different cases that resulted in laws being created to help protect children. Megan Kanka was murdered in 1994 by a repeat child sex offender who lived across the street from the Kanka family. Unfortunately, the family had no idea the type of person that was living so close to them and if they had they could have taken extra precautions. This senseless murder would lead to the creation of Megan's law.In 2005, Jessica Lunsford was murdered by another repeat child sex offender who again was living just across the street from the Lunsford family. Jessica's murder would prompt law makers to enact various versions of "Jessica's Law" around the country.Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the details around these tragic murders and the laws that were enacted as a result of the tragedies.You can support the show by going to Patreon.com/truecrimeallthetimeVisit the show's website at www.truecrimeallthetime.comHelp support our new sponsor Daily Harvest.
