On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, state representative John Frullo talked with Tom Collins about Alicia's Law and how it may relate to a recent alleged kidnapping in Lubbock.

Over the weekend, a 15-year-old girl reported to police that she had been kidnapped from Amarillo and had managed to escape from her captors at a residence in Lubbock. According to police, she said she had been taken from Amarillo about 2 months ago, and was the victim of multiple sexual assaults. The SWAT team was called out to the residence in question on Saturday and three men were arrested and are in police custody.

Frullo said that, unfortunately, many cases like this one are showing up very frequently. He said that human trafficking, kidnapping and other such crimes that endanger children are becoming increasingly prevalent, and that is why laws such as Alicia's Law are needed more than ever. Alicia's Law, which Frullo helped author, provides law enforcement with the resources they need to help track down criminals who endanger children, such as traffickers and online predators.
