Gov. Nixon vetoes change to sex offender website

Wednesday, 03 July 2013 13:12 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has vetoed legislation aimed at keeping the names of people who committed offenses as juveniles off Missouri's public sex offender registry.

The governor said Wednesday the legislation is too broad and would apply to anyone regardless of the crime that was committed. Nixon says crime victims would have been deprived the chance to be heard before someone's name is removed from the public websites, which are aimed at protecting the public.

The vetoed legislation also ultimately would have allowed juveniles to petition the court for removal from the sex offender registry.

Missing infant found; father remains on the loose

Wednesday, 03 July 2013 12:11 Published in Local News

A ten month old girl is safe and sound after being abducted by her father this morning. Police say around 9AM Bryan Grant kicked in the door of the girl's home and kidnapped the girl. About six hours after an Amber Alert was issued, police found the girl outside the home of one of Grant's friends. Grant remains on the loose. 

The suspect is identified as:

Bryan Grant

b/m 1/21/1990

5’10, 145

Brown eyes, black hair.

 

 

The child’s name is Demi Grant, b/f, 11 months of age.

 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The National Rifle Association's Illinois lobbyist is predicting an easy legislative override of Gov. Pat Quinn's gun-carry veto.

Todd Vandermyde says the Democratic governor's suggested changes to concealed carry legislation are too late. He says lawmakers settled the issues Quinn raised and adopted the plan with overwhelming majorities.

A federal appeals court ruling requires a law by July 9 allowing Illinois residents to publicly possess concealed guns. The Legislature sent Quinn a plan last month.

Quinn used amendatory veto authority Tuesday to ban guns from any establishment serving alcohol and to limit gun owners to carrying one weapon at a time.

But Vandermyde says negotiators on all sides in the General Assembly discussed the changes and "the governor's people were never really part of it."
