MD Delegate Not Giving Up On Recently Failed Bill, To Protect Children

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - A bill aimed to protect children in Maryland, recently failed in the House Judiciary Committee.

The bill would prohibit convicted child sex offenders from gaining custody of their children. Currently, the law only bans murderers from having custody. Officials say they believe this bill was put off in this General Assembly, because of the larger pieces of legislation like gun control.

"There are a lot of defense attorneys involved in the House and the Senate Committees so that becomes a factor as well, so those are obstacles we need to overcome," said Maryland Delegate Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio.

The Maryland Delegate also tells WMDT she plans to fight for this bill in the next legislative session.
