SAN DIEGO — The father of a 14-year-old San Diego-area girl who was raped and murdered backed legislation today to require marked driver’s licenses for registered sex offenders in California.
Maurice Dubois announced his support of the bill proposed by Assemblymen Pedro Nava and Paul Cook that would require sex offenders to carry the license or another government-issued identification card when they leave home.
The documents could include a distinctive stripe or color.
Registered sex offender John Albert Gardner III was sentenced to life in prison this month for killing Amber Dubois and 17-year-old Chelsea King.
Amber vanished while walking to school in February 2009.
