Yee bill targets reporting of sexual assaults 

Legislation introduced by state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco-San Mateo, will be heard by the Senate Public Safety Committee Tuesday.

Senate bill 840 would require individuals who reasonably believe they have witnessed a murder, rape or lewd or lascivious act with a child under the age of 18 to notify law enforcement.

The legislation was conceived after a Richmond girl, 16, was allegedly raped repeatedly in front of as many as 20 witnesses.
