Protecting Protectors

It’s been nearly 2 years since a state law was passed after the chilling murder of the son of U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas, and now Daniel’s Law is finally in effect – making it a crime to publish an address or to share or repost the home address of current or retired judges, as well as prosecutors, law enforcement officers and their spouses or children.

Daniel was 20 when he and his father both went to the door of their North Brunswick home where a gunman, posing as a delivery person, opened fire, killing him and wounding his father. Last month, the state’s new Office of Information Policy went live to help officials redact their personal information from certain records and internet postings.

“Not a single day goes by that I don’t think about my Daniel,” says the Hon. Judge Salas. “For me and my husband Mark, there is nothing we can do to bring our Daniel back. However, if you are a Covered Person, you have an option. Please log onto the portal…follow the steps and apply for the safeguards of Daniel’s Law.”
