Amber Dubois’ father tackling gaps in response measures

The father of slain Escondido teenager Amber Dubois is working with lawmakers to develop measures that would help authorities respond quickly when children are snatched off the streets.

Moe Dubois plans to unveil a full package on May 25, which happens to be National Missing Children’s Day, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

“There are gaps and flaws in the system,” Dubois told the newspaper.

“We are trying to recognize those, trying to close those with small legal patches.”

Among the ideas he’s suggesting is a measure that would require child sex predators to carry driver’s licenses identifying them as such, the Union- Tribune reported. Some other states already have similar programs in place.

Amber’s confessed killer, John Albert Gardner III is scheduled to be sentenced May 14 for the rapes and murders of Amber and Poway teen Chelsea King. Chelsea’s family is working on legislation that would lock the most violent offenders away for life.

Gardner’s plea agreement calls for a sentence of two consecutive life terms in prison without the possibility of parole, plus an additional 33 years to life for assaulting a woman last Dec. 27.

Gardner killed Amber in February 2009, after abducting her as she walked to Escondido High School. He killed Chelsea just over a year later as she was jogging near Lake Hodges.
