Felony exploitation of children?
Accordig to USA Today, May 27, 2005, a music store manager in Port Richey, Florida has been charged with felony exploitation of the elderly and was held on $10,000 bail at the Pasco County jail. According to the charge Scott Heyder, manager of a music store, sold a 79 year old woman 11 organs over an 18 month period, including four in one day. The organs keep getting more expensive and Mr. Heyer kept selling to her despite pleas from the woman's family to stop it. What states, including Florida, have a felony exploitation of minors law on the books and what are the statues of limitation?
