Online petition for Cherish's Law reaches 1,200 signatures
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There is a growing push to make sure more local kids don't suffer the fate of 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle.
The girl from Northwest Jacksonville was abducted and killed last month.
An online petition urging lawmakers to pass Cherish's Law now has 1,200 signatures.
They are asking leaders to reform repeat sex offender laws, to keep better tabs on offenders after they serve time.
