NORWAY, Maine -- The family of a woman killed in a hunting accident
is working to prevent future fatal shootings.
As part of a plea deal, Timothy Bean, 51, of Paris, this week was
sentenced to 30 days in prison for shooting Megan Ripley, 18, in the
chest last December.
Now, Ripley's father is proposing a law called The Children's Safety
Act. The legislations would require hunters to receive written
permission from landowners before hunting on their land.
Troy Ripley said that if he had known there were hunters on his
property on the day of the shooting, his daughter would still be alive.
