Raleigh NC with Dean Arp

Raleigh NC with Dean Arp

Important Update from Jeff Gerber on the status of Kilahs Law:

As we patiently wait for The NC Senate Appropriations Committee to release “Kilahs Law” to The Full Senate for a vote and onward to The Governor for his signature it is important to understand Felony Child Abuse Inflicting Serious Bodily Harm is not just a North Carolina problem. It is a Nationwide problem.

Therefore it is with great excitement to provide you folks with the following information.


If enacted, the Kilah Davenport Child Protection Act will ensure states punish child abusers who inflict serious injury with a minimum sentence of more than 10 years.

States that do not meet minimum sentencing requirements would lose the right to receive federal taxpayer money for child abuse prevention programs. Until states take serious action to punish child abusers, it’s a waste of federal taxpayer money to pay for prevention programs on the front end.

If anyone can attend the press conference today, information below:

Congressman Pittenger will be joined at the announcement by the Davenport family and grassroots supporters who have been fighting for tougher penalties in cases of severe child abuse.

WHO:  Congressman Robert Pittenger, Davenport family, grassroots activists
WHAT:  Announcing federal legislation to increase penalties for severe child abuse
WHEN:  Thursday, March 28th, 10:30 a.m.
WHERE:  Crossing Paths Park, located next to the Town of Indian Trail Administrative Building, 130 Blythe Drive, Indian Trail, NC

CONTACT:  Jamie Bowers, 704-365-6234
