SD Panel Endorses Broadening Domestic Abuse Law

March 3, 2014, 2:19 PM

SD Panel Endorses Broadening Domestic Abuse Law
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota legislative panel has approved a measure that would expand the state's domestic abuse laws to cover dating couples who don't live together.

Current law defines domestic abuse as harm or the fear of harm committed by family or household members against spouses, former spouses, some relatives, people who live in the same household or people who have a child together.

The House Judiciary Committee voted 8-5 to pass a bill that would broaden coverage to include people who are in or have been in a significant romantic relationship with each other or are expecting a child with each other.

The measure, passed earlier by the Senate, now goes to the full House. It was written by a study committee after lawmakers rejected a similar measure last year.
