Attention for NY mommies, daddies, and any other NY state citizen

I am writing today to ask for everyone's help. Currently there is a proposed bill called JayJ's Law. This bill needs to become a law. First let me tell you a little bit about how this bill came to be.

A little boy named JJ was beaten by his father, Jeremy Bolvin in the Buffalo area. He was only 4 months at the time of the attack. JJ suffered 11 fractures; broken ribs, a broken arm, femur, and others. He now has a severe seizure disorder called Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (the most severe kind of epilepsy) and continues to have seizures EVERY day. He will be 26 months old in a week, and he is still only at about an 8 month old's mentality. Last week, his custodians were very excited to show off his first....yes his first...drawing.

This was the third offence Jeremy has had with child abuse. What was the sentence may you ask? Well...1-4 years...the current state maximum. That is it. He will be done with his time before JJ even has time to even start reconstructing his life. This bill will hopefully change that.

JayJ's Law is all about increasing the sentencing for repeat child abuse offenders to 36 years. In my opinion, still not enough...but it is much better then 1-4 years....I am sure you can all agree. So, NYers...I ask you to help support this bill. Here is a flier that you can print out, share, do whatever you want with it...just please help share the word and help increase the time that these HORRIBLE people spend in jail!

This child is VERY near and dear to my heart and I hope that people will help out. I have never wished more now in this moment that I still lived in NY so I could do all these things. Unfortunately, I no longer live there, so this is why I need your help. Please don't let what happened to JJ happen to the next kid down the blog. Thank you for everything you can do.



Here are some helpful links to read up on the subject...starting with the first time Jeremy was brought to custody:
