Marco Rubio on Crime
But the story generated almost no buzz. The mainstream media mostly ignored it, and in the few placed where it was mentioned it was usually derided.
State government synopsis: Increases penalties for procuring minor for prostitution; revises provisions re sex trafficking; revises provisions prohibiting deriving support or maintenance from earnings of prostitution; provides for payments to persons who provide information that materially assists law enforcement in investigation of specified violations leading to felony convictions or withholdings of adjudication.
[We should] toughen prison sentences to keep Florida's children safe from sexual predators, and expand DNA collection to include all felony offenses and sexually deviant misdemeanors. Florida should expand the dangerous sexual felony offender law to that all second-time sex offenders are subject to a minimum 20-year sentence. The act will also provide a mandatory life sentence for all third-time offenders. It will also allow misdemeanor sex offenses to be enhanced to felonies and apply the enhanced penalties to those crimes
Solution: Streamline the appeals process in criminal cases. Florida should create a new, more efficient, less expensive process for reviewing criminal cases that instills more public confidence in the criminal justice system. This could be accomplished by limiting the time convicted felons have to appeal their sentences.
