Conservative lawmakers and Tennessee Governor Bill Lee have taken strong action to crack down on child rapists. The governor has signed into law a bill permitting the use of the death penalty in cases of convicted child rapists. The bill, designated SB1834/HB1663, introduced by Republican Senator Jack Johnson of Franklin and Representative William Lamberth of Portland, will go into effect on July 1.

The bill authorizes the use of the death penalty for rape of a child, aggravated rape of a child, or especially aggravated rape of a child.

Tennessee currently requires adults convicted of child rape to receive a sentence of no less than 15 and no more than 60 years. That now changes to a sentence of life in prison or death on July 1.

This new measure is designed to increase the severity of the punishment and send a clear message to criminals that crimes against children will not be tolerated in Tennessee. The stateโ€™s conservative lawmakers hope that this new measure will serve as a deterrent to potential child rapists and reduce the number of child abuse cases in Tennessee.
