|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson will participate in a town hall forum on the issue of criminal domestic violence (CDV) in Sumter, S.C. this week.
According to a news release from his office, Wilson will join S.C. Senator Thomas McElveen, S.C. Rep. David Weeks, and domestic violence survivor Shakia Spears at the event. Weeks, incidentally, is a member of the House judiciary committee which is currently debating a CDV bill which passed the State Senate last month.
Wilson “has made the passage of domestic violence reform his top priority for the current legislative session,” the release stated.
How’s that effort going? Eh …
Wilson’s CDV town hall will be held at the gymnasium at Thomas Sumter Academy (5265 Camden Highway) in Rembert, S.C. on Thursday night from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. EDT.
As we’ve said from the beginning of this process, we haven’t been particularly impressed with any of this year’s proposed CDV reforms. Frankly, if lawmakers were serious about cracking down on violence against women, they might consider better addressing cases like THIS … or THIS.
Anyway, the issue has become a point of contention among lawmakers … as FITS exclusively reported over the weekend.
