PETITION TO CREATE STIFFER PENALTIES FOR LYING TO POLICE REGARDING A DEATH

Lying to the police during a kidnapping or murder investigation, or any investigation where a life is at stake, should receive more than 1 year per count of falsifying information to a police officer. In the case of Casey Anthony, her child was reported missing when she was actually dead.  This type of offense should be a felony with a minimum of 5 years per count. We can not continue to reward people for lying to the police while covering up a death or a murder. Our citizens are outraged over the Casey Anthony case and the slap on the wrist that she received and we want the laws changed. Stiffer penalties MUST be made!

Create Stiffer Penalties for Lying to Police

Lying to the police during a murder investigation should receive more than 1 year per count. Casey Anthony hid the body of her dead child, made up false kidnapping charges and lied to the police. This type of offense should be a felony with a minimum of 5 years per count. We can not continue to reward people for lying to the police while covering up a death. Our citizens are outraged and we want the laws changed. Stiffer penalties MUST be made!
