His legacy
Ryan Luke Bill  

1995 - Three year old Ryan Aubrey Luke dies in McAlester because of child abuse. OSBI Agents investigate the murder. The crime and subsequent public outcry spawn the "Ryan Luke Bill" to protect Oklahoma children.

Oklahoma City- Governor Frank Keating today signed HB 2053, commonly called the Ryan Luke bill.

"Even though this bill was named for little Ryan Luke, its signing is dedicated to all Oklahoma children who suffer abuse. While a state law can't stop abuse, it certainly can establish a system which protects children as much as possible. I congratulate legislators of both parties who worked to write this important law," Governor Keating said. 

Among the key provisions of the law:

* Requiring monitoring by the court for one year after a child involved in an abuse or neglect situation is returned to parental custody

* Requiring training in child and domestic abuse issues for all judges involved in such cases

* Requiring court-appointed special advocates to be available in all judicial districts and appointment of an attorney to represent the interests of children in abuse cases

* Removing confidentiality from cases involving deaths and providing information to foster parents, law enforcement and child welfare agencies

* Requiring DHS to conduct criminal history investigations of prospective foster family members, and prohibiting placement of a child with any convicted sex offender or domestic abuser

* Permitting postponement of child placement rulings and reviewing when a child's welfare is endangered 

"Growing up in this world is difficult enough for a child without having to worry about being abused by those who are supposed to love and care for you. I feel this new law goes a long way in making the system work on behalf of Oklahoma's children," the Governor said.
