DeSantis Signs New Law to Begin Executing Pedophiles in Florida

Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has signed legislation into law that will allow the state to begin executing pedophiles.

DeSantis signed a new package of crime bills into law this week.

All of the law and order bills are designed to keep criminals out of the streets.

The first of the three bills targets bail reforms being pushed by leftist prosecutors.

The second increases penalties on fentanyl traffickers.

While the third bill makes those who commit certain crimes against children eligible for the death penalty.

In a statement about the new laws, DeSantis said Florida will help to keep children safe by “throwing the book at pedophiles.”

“Florida is a law-and-order state with a 50-year record low crime rate and double-digit year-over-year decreases in murder, burglary, and overall crime,” DeSantis said.

“For three consecutive legislative sessions we have enacted tough-on-crime policies, and this year we are continuing to implement measures to protect our communities and keep Florida safe, with a particular emphasis on keeping criminals in jail and throwing the book at pedophiles.”

House Bill 1627 addresses “bail reforms” through a variety of actions, including requiring the Florida Supreme Court to develop a uniform statewide bond schedule by the end of the year.

The bill prohibits judges from setting a lower bond amount than the uniform state bond, prohibits a defendant from being released prior to their first appearance in court if they have been arrested for a violent or heinous crime, and adds a series of crimes to the state’s list of “dangerous crimes.”

House Bill 1359 increases criminal penalties on those who traffic “rainbow fentanyl” by making those who traffic such substances eligible for a life sentence and imposing a minimum 25-year sentence and a $1 million penalty and making it a first-degree felony to possess, sell, or manufacture fentanyl and other controlled substances that resemble candy.

DeSantis also signed House Bill 1297 into law which imposes the death penalty on pedophiles who “commit sexual battery against children under the age of 12,” the governor’s office said.

Democrats are expected to take legal action in an effort to overturn the laws, however.

Nevertheless, the governor said that he is prepared to take the fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court “to overrule judicial precedents which have unjustly shielded child rapists from the death penalty and denied victims and their loved ones the opportunity to pursue ultimate justice against these most heinous criminals.”

Last month, DeSantis signed a bill into law that drops the requirement for a death sentence to be handed out to a convicted criminal from a unanimous vote for jurors to only 8 out of 12 jurors.
