Information About Kimberly’s Law – In Memory of Kimberly Proctor
March 18th 2010 Kimberly (Kimmy) Proctor was tragically & brutally murdered by two of her peers, Kruse Wellwood 16 & Cameron Moffatt 17 in Victoria, B.C. Canada.
Our family is advocating for reforms that would help prevent what happened to Kimmy from happening to another person.
We the family of Kimmy started communicating with Troy DeSouza, Lawyer at DeSouza Arnold LLP in Victoria, B.C., not long after Kimmy’s death. Many issues came to light during the investigation & court process. We made note of these & felt there were changes needed within the Federal & Provincial Governments with respect to young offenders. As a family & with the aid of Troy & his law team we are taking steps to make a difference in the wake of our loved one’s horrific death. These changes are detailed in Kimberly’s Law which includes seven proposals.
The first three proposals establish threat assessment protocols, mandatory counseling and parental responsibility requirements. The remaining four proposals seek to build upon the recent young offender amendments by making those convicted of first or second-degree murder fully accountable for their actions. Please refer to Kimberly’s Law for complete description.
We hope the public will help us with our Mission in Kimmy’s name. You can do so by printing off the petition for the province you reside in & the Canadian petition, collect signatures & send the petitions back to the contact person.
Our family thanks you in advance for your support and with help from the public we know that we can make these changes and prevent others from going through what we did.
