The only defences are that somebody else has custody or to prove to the court that you have done everything possible to adequate supervise the child. They should have called it the Madison Jones Act.
I'll bet that's pretty difficult to prove. Who keeps a log of their parental actions?
EDIT - It sounds like a decent law, though. I'm fully in the camp of parents taking responsibility for their kids. You don't just get to produce them and then let them fend for themselves their whole life. It's work, and if you're not willing to do it, you shouldn't be having kids.
