Rep. Janine Boyd Introduces Domestic Violence Bill

February 5, 2019—Ohio Rep. Janine Boyd (D-Cleveland Heights) today announced plans for a bill named after Aisha Fraser, the beloved Woodbury teacher who was murdered November 17. Aisha’s Law is aimed to reform the state’s domestic violence laws. There are three main components of the bill. Boyd said it would require officers to utilize the Lethality Assessment Program, or LAP, which is a strategy for law enforcement to identify victims who are at high risk of being harmed or killed by a partner. It also would create a task force to work with the victim and alleged abuser to get help for both parties and provide prosecutors with real-time facts on the case. Boyd, whose district includes Shaker Heights, announced the bill during a Statehouse news conference that included Ms. Fraser’s family, friends and sorority sisters. Watch the news conference here.
