Protecting Victims of Domestic Violence

Working with local advocacy leaders in our community, I authored and passed SB 112 to protect victims of domestic violence during the critical and emotional time of an emergency protective order.

 

With SB 112 (84R) passing into law, a judge now has the power to issue an emergency protective order banning all forms of communication between the abuser and victim or victim's family (except through an attorney or appointed person). With the weight of everything victims are going through during that time, I believe they should, at minimum, be offered refuge from all communication with the abuser.
