The Buzz: Assembly Passes Measure Sparked by Caylee Anthony Case
The Casey Anthony case has reached the California Legislature.
The Assembly this week approved new parental obligations in response to the much-publicized Florida case. Anthony waited a month to report her 2-year-old daughter missing but ultimately was acquitted in her death.
Assembly Bill 1432 would make parents or guardians guilty of a misdemeanor if they knowingly fail to report, within 24 hours, the disappearance of a child younger than 14.
