One state lawmaker's looking to ramp-up a law regarding certain sex offenders.
Senator John Ford of Bartlesville said under current law, sex offenders with convictions involving victims under age thirteen cannot loiter within 500 feet of a school.
"If the bill passes, it means any sex offender whose victim was eighteen years or younger will not be able to loiter around an elementary, junior-high or high school," Ford told KTOK.
Ford said he thinks expanding the scope of the law to include victims up to age eighteen could better protect school-age children. He said the bill was requested by some education professionals.
