The Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference will
continue pushing for changes in state laws during the 2014 legislative session
to better enable prosecution of serial child abusers and to increase punishment
for child neglect.
The district attorneys will also continue seeking
legislative approval for additional assistant district attorneys in judicial
districts that have seen the largest caseload increases since 2006, when the
General Assembly last added new prosecutors.
"In 2014, we will continue our push for stronger laws to
protect our kids,"said Jimmy Dunn, District Attorney General for Sevier,
Cocke, Jefferson, and Grainger Counties.
