Anyone convicted of a violent sex offense against a child in California will get life in prison without parole starting Thursday, after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed "Chelsea's Law."
The law was named for 17-year-old Chelsea King, who was murdered earlier this year by a registered sex offender who also admitted killing 14-year-old Amber Dubois.
"Because of Chelsea, California children will be safer," Schwarzenegger said. "Because of Chelsea, this never has to happen again."
