Parents of little girl who inspired Megan's Law recall brutal rape, murder of their daughter 20 years later. Megan Kanka was raped and strangled by a twice-convicted sex offender, Jesse Timmendequas, who lived across the street from her home in Hamilton Township, N.J., in July of 1994. Her parents, Maureen and Richard Kanka, pushed tirelessly for the law that alerts parents when a sexual predator moves into the neighborhood. Two decades later, the family is still haunted by the tragedy.
Traveling just became more difficult for registered sex offenders due to the International Megan's Law (IML), introduced to Congress with the goal of preventing registered sex offenders from visiting other countries to have sex with children. But is the IML fair?
