WOODBURY - ? Suffolk legislators have implemented a new law requiring parents to alert authorities within 24 hours if their child is missing. The new law that has passed was prompted by the Casey Anthony case. The law called ?Caylee?s Law? would have added a year to Anthony?s sentence had it been in place in Florida. According to Newsday, under the new measure, parents who do not promptly report their child missing will face a $1,000 fine and up to a year behind bars.
