Amy's Law

Earlier this week we reported to you how a bill called "Amy's Law" has been passed by the state legislature. The bill is named for Amy Theriault who was murdered in St. Francis. The new law gives a judge the power to give a life sentence if a domestic violence case results in murder. Desiree Chasse, the Associate Director of the Hope & Justice Project, says Theriault's family has been proactive and persistent in pushing for the bill's signage into law over the past five years.
