A state bill that targets pedophiles who publish photos of children online is now headed to the governor's desk for a signature.

Assemblyman Cameron Smyth, R-Santa Clarita, introduced the Surrogate Stalker Act to make it a misdemeanor to engage in surrogate stalking, which is the act of publishing photos, physical descriptions, and/or locations of children so that another person uses that information to commit a crime against a child.

Smyth introduced the bill after self-proclaimed pedophile Jack McClellan last year included Santa Clarita on his list of places to find children.

"I am very happy that this bill has received such overwhelming bipartisan support throughout the legislative process," Smyth said in a statement. "I look forward to the governor signing this bill so that our children can grow up in a society in which they can go to parks and amusement centers without the worry of being victimized by sexual predators."
