Gov. Quinn Signs Steven's Law, Harsher Penalties For Parents Violating Visitation Orders


Legislation named in honor of murder victim Steven Watkins has been signed into law.

 

Governor Pat Quinn signed the bill Wednesday, toughening penalties for parents who violate visitation orders.

 

The new law will allow the court to impose jail time or fines, or suspend the drivers’ licenses, of non-compliant parents.

 

Watkins was killed by his ex-wife’s grandmother in 2008 as he attempted to pick up his daughter for a court-ordered visit.

 

Since then, his ex-wife has defied several court orders allowing Watkins’s parents to see the girl.
