Middlesex DA Gerry Leone is going to try it again.... It has been shot down 3 times, but maybe after the tragic death of Woburn police officer John âJackâ Maguire the liberals pols in Massachusetts will finally feel enough heat to pass Mellissa's bill. âMelissaâs Billâ was filed in the memory of Melissa Gosule, a then-27-year-old teacher who, on July 11, 1999, was driving on Cape Cod when her car broke down and then accepted a ride from a stranger who offered to help. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to Melissa, the man who offered to help her was a repeat offender who had served less then two years in jail for a combined 27 criminal convictions. It was the last time that Melissa was ever seen alive, and she was found eight days later in a shallow grave. Why would anyone vote against a Bill that keeps the most dangerous criminals off the street?
