(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Celeste M. Riley, Gabriela M. Mosquera, Paul D. Moriarty and Angel Fuentes to allow domestic violence victims to testify against their abusers via closed circuit television under certain circumstances was approved 74-1 Monday by the full Assembly.
"Many victims struggle with reporting their abusers out of fear for their safety. The same fear extends to testifying against them in court," said Riley (D- Cumberland/Gloucester/Salem). "This bill ensures a victim can have her day in court without being intimidated by her abuser."
