Muñoz on “Jessica Lunsford Act” Bill Signing: It was Worth the Effort
           

Assemblywoman Nancy F. Muñoz said the hard work and perseverance was all worth the effort at today’s ceremony where Gov. Christie signed legislation known as the “Jessica Lunsford Act” into law. The new law increases the criminal penalties on those who commit sex crimes against minors.  Muñoz is the prime sponsor of the legislation which was initially introduced by her late husband, Assemblyman Eric Muñoz, nine years ago.

“The tragedy involving Jessica Lunsford shocked our country nine years ago,” said Muñoz, R-Union, Morris and Somerset. “We sympathized with Mark Lunsford and his family over their loss. This heinous act, committed in Florida, raised everyone’s awareness across the country and was a call to action. I am grateful to all those who supported and remained committed to seeing this legislation become law.

“I want to thank Governor Christie for his support and Senate President Sweeney and Speaker Prieto for their part in making the Jessica Lunsford Act law in New Jersey."
