Change The Punishment For First Time Domestic Violence Offenders
- State legislatures
- United States of America
In most states there is only a 48 hour hold on the offender who commits domestic violence. The victim/s need more time to get their safety in order for themselves and their children.
The mandatory minimum sentence should be at least 30 days in the county jail before the offender is considered for O/R.
The law should be changed from a 48 hour hold to a minimal 30 days in county jail before being considered for release and a mandatory 3 year restraining order.
