Rachel’s Law


The Tallahassee Democrat ran an article about the legislative push being launched by Irv Hoffman, whose 23-year-old daughter, Rachel, was killed earlier this month while taking part in a drug sting. She reportedly agreed to be an informant after being arrested on drug charges.

“I don’t think kids should be doing police work,” Irv Hoffman said Monday from his Palm Harbor home. “I am going to try to get a Rachel Law going so kids aren’t used in this way.”

The newspaper ran an earlier story on her funeral, during which her rabbi read from her Bat Mitzvah speech.

Students for Sensible Drug Policy, a campus group with which Hoffman was involved, have setup a page on their website encouraging people to donate to a fund to help get the law passed.
