Another legislative battle is brewing over Rachel’s Law.
A pair of lawmakers want to strengthen the legislation named after a Florida State University student who was slain in a 2008 drug sting that went horribly wrong.
Twenty three-year-old Rachel Hoffman was working undercover for the Tallahassee Police Department when she was killed. Her grieving parents demanded reforms in the way police use confidential informants.
But the law was watered down after police complained they would lose their best tool for catching drug and other suspects.
