St. Louis, MO – The bill requires those convicted of forcible rape or forcible sodomy to generally serve at least 30 years in prison if the victim was younger than 12.
So-called "persistent" sex offenders would have to serve a life sentence without parole.
Gov. Blunt is highlighting the legislation with a statewide tour that includes a stop today in St. Louis.
