California State Senator To Call for Legislation to Protect Disabled from Sex Crimes

SACRAMENTO -- State Sen. Fran Pavley announced her intent Tuesday to introduce legislation to help protect developmentally disabled victims of sex crimes in California’s state developmental centers and state hospitals.
Pavley, whose senate district includes about half of the Santa Clarita Valley, is working with Disability Rights California, the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA), The Arc of California and United Cerebral Palsy to introduce legislation to require that sexual abuse victims within the state developmental centers and state psychiatric hospitals receive timely forensic medical examinations.
