SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (News4Utah) – There was a rally Thursday in support of a bill offering domestic violence victims a little peace of mind.
Sheroes United joined bill sponsor Rep. Robert Spendlove to promote House Bill 333. It would require anyone who violates a protection order to wear a GPS monitor.
If the offender gets too close, an alert would be sent to the victim and police. Those at the rally say the bill could be the difference between life and death.
House Bill 333 also increases the penalty for domestic violence changing a first offense to a class A misdemeanor and a second offense to a third-degree felony.
