Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor, Lakewood Police Chief Larry Sanders and state Attorney General Rob McKenna will be among those testifying this afternoon in Olympia on proposed crime bills.
They’ll be testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which meets at 3:30 p.m.
The sheriff will be offering his support of Senate Bill 6103, which creates a pilot program for enforcement of financial fraud and identity theft laws.
Also before the Senate committee is SB 5987. McKenna requested the legislation, which would create the crime of tagging/gang graffiti, clearly define "criminal gangs" and provide longer sentences for crimes committed by members of criminal gangs and those attempting to join criminal gangs.
