Louisiana lawmaker proposes 'Caylee's Law'
July 8, 2011

WWL.com Reporting
Since the acquittal of Casey Anthony on all felony charges against her, lawmakers in several states have proposed so-called "Caylee's laws," bills that would make it a crime to not report a child's death to authorities in a timely manner.  State Senator A.G. Crowe of Slidell today announced something similar.

"This bill is necessary to make sure that what has recently happened in Florida will not happen here in Louisiana," said Sen. Crowe in a news release. "It is unacceptable that missing children go unreported or that their deaths go unrecognized. We must do everything in our power to ensure our children's safety and penalize those who stand in the way of bringing justice for those who deserve it most."

Caylee Anthony-inspired bill clears Louisiana Legislature
May 22, 2012

Baton Rouge -- A bill making it a crime not to report the disappearance or death of a child, inspired by the Caylee Anthony case in Florida, is headed to Gov. Bobby Jindal's desk. Representatives on Tuesday agreed to Senate amendments to House Bill 600 by Rep. Barbara Norton, D-Shreveport, which requires caretakers to quickly report a missing or dead child to authorities. The bill, which passed unanimously, requires that a child younger than 7 be reported missing if he or she has been gone for 12 hours, a child between the ages of 7 and 13 be reported missing after no contact for a day, and a teenager between 13 and 17 be reported after 36 hours.
When a child dies, a caretaker must report it to authorities within an hour, though the bill specifies that failing to report the death is a crime only if it is done with the intent to mislead a public official or impede an investigation.


Anyone found guilty of failing to report a missing child could be fined up to $500 and imprisoned for up to two years. If the disappearance results in serious bodily injury or the death of the child, anyone found guilty of failing to report that the child was missing could be fined up to $5,000 and imprisoned between two and five years. Anyone found guilty of failing to report the death of a child could be fined up to $5,000 and imprisoned for up to five years.

Bill punishes silence in missing child case

With a vote of 90-0, the Louisiana House gave final legislative approval Tuesday to a bill inspired by Florida’s Casey Anthony case.

House Bill 600 by state Rep. Barbara Norton, D-Shreveport, would subject someone to jail time for failing to report a missing child within a short time frame.

If the child later was found dead, a parent or caretaker could serve up to 50 years in prison.

Similar bills are sweeping the nation following a Florida mother’s acquittal in her child’s death.

Casey Anthony never told Florida authorities that her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was missing. The toddler’s remains later were found in a wooded area. The cause of death could not be determined.

A jury convicted Casey Anthony last year of “providing false information to a law enforcement officer” for lying about her daughter’s whereabouts. The case sparked outrage, both for Anthony’s acquittal on a murder charge and for the short amount of time she spent behind bars.
