Kimberlee Morton was brutally raped, stabbed, and burned in Tennessee 13 years ago - by a man she thought was her friend. To make matters worse, she later found out her rapist was released early from prison for good behavior. Since then, Morton has made it a personal mission to change this law. And in Tennessee, she did.
"The governor of Tennessee signed my bill into law to ensure anybody convicted of aggravated assault will serve 100% of their time. Everybody wants the "Kimberlee's Law" in all 50 states so I do plan on doing it in all 50 states. I'm going from state to state, because I feel like all victims deserve justice, not just in Tennessee, all over the world," says Kimberlee Morton, survivor.
"Kimberlee's Law" closes the loophole that allows violent rapists to earn good behavior credits. Right now, Morton is trying to change state laws here in New York. And she says she also plans to push for federal laws.
