DES MOINES | Barbara Hovland, a member of the Iowa Republican Party's State Central Committee for Cerro Gordo County, will host a rally Saturday calling for stricter laws against people who sexually assault or abuse children. 

"Justice For Our Iowa Children" is 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, on the steps of the Iowa State Capitol. 

Deborah Yanna, the grandmother of a then 6-year-old girl who was abused by her grandfather, Dean Hilpipre, will be attending. 

The public is invited to attend, as well as elected officials, Hovland said. 

"Our children are off limits! Let’s make it harder to offer Plea Deals to predators who harm our children," Hovland said in a statement.
