She used her influence in the growth of gaining national support for Conner’s Law (Kentucky Bill HB168) making child abuse by murder a violent crime in Kentucky. Ms. Kshir received a Letter of Recommendation from Conner’s mother, Mashanna Bachuss, on December 5, 2019. 

Conner Bachuss was just two-years old when he died from unspeakable abuse. The man charged, Ronald Saunder II, was his mother’s boyfriend at the time. Initially charged with murder, he took a plea deal for second degree manslaughter and received a 10 year sentence. Saunders would only serve 5 years.

Conner’s Law was signed by Governor Steve Beshear on March 25, 2015 in Kentucky.
