Child Homicide Statistics

Inflicting violence on a child is an unjust and punishable action!

Violence is the leading cause of death, hospitalization, and disability for children ages 1 through 18. 

The United States is Ranked 7th in the world in global homicide

UNICEF who works hard to improve policies that protect all children reports; that there are about 4 annual child homicides for every 100,000 people. 

Minnesota Statistic of Children Murdered In

Age 1: 16 Homicides

Age 1-4: 21 Homicides

Ages 5-9: Unspecified

Ages 10-14: 11 Homicides

Ages 15-19: 62 Homicides

Minnesota Statistic of Children Murdered In

Under age 10: 8 Homicides

Ages 10-15: 2 Homicides

Ages 15-18: 2 Homicides

Minnesota Statistic of Children Murdered In

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND

Please keep in mind that not all crimes against children are reported to authorities, so it is more likely than not, that the statistical numbers are even higher. 

Cameron D. Norris

12/23/1999 to 02/07/2003

Cameron was born December 23, 1999 into the arms of Cynthia Sweats. He was a very healthy and absolutely adorable 8 lbs and 11 oz. little bundle of joy.  He grew into such a sweet and precious 3-year-old. He was THAT CHILD who could walk into a room and people always noticed him & his BIG bright smile. 

HIS FAVORITE SONG

Cameron loved "Air Force Ones" by Nelly. He also enjoyed singing to the songs he knew on the radio and dancing until he fell down laughing. 

MOMMY'S MISSED MEMORY

"Cameron loved to cuddle up next to me and lay on my stomach, He used to hear all the gurgling going on and he would mimic the sounds that he heard! He used to make me laugh so hard doing that!" 

Cameron's Killer: Samuel C. Jones

MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS OFFENDER

Samuel Christopher Jones Offender ID:

212953, was a long time family friend who was trusted to watch Cameron on one occasion, so Cynthia could go to work. Jones brutally beat Cameron to death on February 7, 2003. 


Jones told detectives he had fell of the counter. Duct tape with blood on it was found in the trash to cover Cameron's screams. Cameron has bruises all over his little body and a big boot print on his back. Cameron was rushed to the hospital but he passed away the very next morning while on life support. 




HIS PRISON SENTENCE FOR MURDERING CAMERON

Jones accepted a plea bargain on the lesser charge of second-degree "Unintentional" Homicide. In November 2003, the max the judge could sentence Jones was to 20 years in MN State Prison. 

HE IS FREE

Jones was released from prison on March 8, 2017 after only serving 14 years. He violated parole May 2017. He went back to prison and was released AGAIN, on August 1, 2017. Jones is to remain on parole until 2023 and be listed as a predatory offender for life. This is NOT and will NEVER be justice for Cynthia's Loss!


MANY MINNESOTA CHILD HOMICIDE CASES have received the same light sentencing too. We NEED a law with HARSHER sentencing specifically FOR children!

About FFCAK

THE MISSION

Due to the injustice Cynthia faced behind her son's murder, she made it her personal mission to change the law on child murder since April 2013. From there, Cynthia became the founder of "Fighting for Cameron and Kids".  


Currently, she is in college At National American University and will graduate in June 2019 with her Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice. From there, she plans to continue her education to obtain her Bachelor's Degree In Criminal Justice and anticipates graduating in 2020. Cynthia plans to use her knowledge and skills to better advocate for changing laws for our children. 


This mission cannot be completed alone.   FFCAK needs your support to make this happen! SIGN THE PETITION! 

FFCAK ADVOCATES MURDER LAW GOAL

Seek lawmakers to implement "Cameron Norris Law" as a Child Murder law in Minnesota. "Cameron Norris Law" MUST be implemented into the First-Degree Murder Statute for adults who murder a child in order for the convicted offender to receive a life sentence. 


As apart of this law, a plea bargain of Second-Degree "Intentional" Murder will  be offered. This plea bargain will provide the offender an opportunity for parole after 40 years (26 served years with good time). HOWEVER, if the offender is non-compliant and cannot meet the terms of the plea bargain agreement, the offender will forfeit the plea bargain, and remain in prison for life. #CameronNorrisLaw

"Cameron Norris Law"

OUR RESOLUTION TO CHILD HOMICIDE   

Be it resolved...that the DFL make it a Legislative Priority to pass Cameron Norris Law, allowing to put into place guidelines for sentencing of adults that commit child homicides.  Offenders will be charged with 1st degree homicide, when arrested and booked into jail.  The offender is given the choice to go to trial or take the "Intentional Second-Degree Murder" plea deal. The plea deal will be an intense and extensive rehabilitative program that can provide parole to the offender after 40 years, only if all requirements and terms of the plea deal are met.
