Penalties for those convicted of leading police on high speed chases could be toughened under legislation put forward by Representative Jack Jackson of Wildwood. Jackson says the current laws allow for some suspects to face only misdemeanor charges. And that, he says, must change. Jackson says his proposal would close any loopholes that exist and ensure that those arrested for leading police on these chases face serious felony charges. He adds his legislation would not set the rules for police pursuits, but it would give police forces throughout the state an extra tool.
