DENVER - Following the passage of HB-1011 in House Judiciary by a vote of 11-0, Attorney John Suthers issued the following statement:
“Today’s vote is a step forward in providing better protection for our children online,” said Suthers. “Thanks to the Judiciary Committee and the work of Sen. Paula Sandoval and Rep. Bob McCluskey, we’re one step closer to giving law enforcement the additional tools they need to prevent Internet predators from preying on our children.”
HB-1011 would make it a felony to sexual exploit a child online and make certain quantities of child pornography a felony.
Suthers also recognized the leadership of the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Terrance Carroll (D-Denver) in helping to get HB-1011 passed in committee.
