(Columbus, OH) Debate will soon begin in the Ohio legislature on a bill named to honor a murdered Anthony Wayne High School graduate.
Lawmakers unveiled the Reagan Tokes Act Wednesday, proposing several reforms for the sentencing and post-release monitoring of violent felons. The murder victim's mother joined a bipartisan group of state lawmakers at the Ohio Statehouse Wednesday.
Tokes was kidnapped, raped and killed this year in Columbus by an ex-con with a long list of violent crimes. Prosecutors say the suspect was under GPS monitoring, but was not on a 24-hour watch. The bill is set up to correct those types of shortcomings.
