Letter: Be tough on domestic violence


Domestic violence causes such everlasting emotional, physical, psychological and financial hardship on victims and our society. It is past time our legal system began to think of protecting the victim from the scourge of these offenders instead of giving them breaks or “the benefit of the doubt.”

Domestic violence:

First offense, 9 months in jail.

Second offense, 12 years in prison.

Third offense, life in prison.

Mandatory. No plea deals. No reducing the charges.
