Hillsdale Mom Looks To Amend Bill She Helped Pass

HILLSDALE, N.J. -- Hillsdale resident Rosemarie D’Alessandro is working to give a New Jersey bill she helped pass in 1997 a broader reach, according to NorthJersey.com.

D'Alessandro crusaded for the passage of “Joan’s Law,” in honor of her daughter who was raped and murdered while selling Girl Scout cookies in 1973. The law prohibits those who committed a sex crime against a child under 14 from parole eligibility, NorthJersey.com reported.

Today, D'Alessandro is working to expand the scope of the law to include children under the age of 18. The state Assembly is expected to vote on a measure that would release the expanded bill from the Judiciary Committee, NorthJersey.com said.
