One of the act's prime co-sponsors, Dick Kravitz, R-Jacksonville, has a related proposal for the current legislative session worthy of equal support.
Under House Bill 85, anyone convicted of molesting a child under age 12 prior to the Lunsford Act who is convicted for the same offense in the future would go to prison for life.
"It's a severe sentence, but the point of the matter is it's a much more severe crime," Kravitz said. "If you are convicted of doing this one time and could do it again, then you are what they call a classic pedophile and you are likely to do it a third, fourth or fifth time."
Kravitz said all the scholarly research he has read on the subject of pedophiles - as well as the physicians and psychiatrists he has consulted - say that people prone to sexually molesting young children rarely alter their behavior.
One incident can devastate a young person and their family and lead to lifelong emotional and physical problems.
People who choose yet another time to inflict that damage should pay lifelong consequences in a place where they can't hurt more children.
Kravitz's bill would see to it in Florida.
