CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Group leaders and legislation enforcement throughout the state have been pushing the state legislature to move a Dangerousness Invoice to maintain defendants accused of great crimes, and thought of harmful, in jail whereas they await trial.
In December 2021 Governor Charlie Baker filed a invoice, An Act to Shield Victims of Crimes and the Public and An Act Relative to the Dangerous Distribution of Sexually Specific Visible Supplies. The measure is designed to strengthen public security instruments and statutes to maintain survivors of crime and communities secure. That is the second dangerousness invoice filed by the governor and native lawmakers and public security officers need to see it handed by the legislature this time.
