Committing act in front of children would bring 30 days in jail
A new domestic violence law might soon come before the council.
During the goal-setting retreat last month, in which council members presented items to prioritize in the coming year, Councilman Josh Schaer brought attention to a 2006 law passed by the city of Federal Way. It calls for a mandatory 30-day sentence to convicted offenders of a domestic violence crime in the presence of a child.
Schaer said he wanted to investigate the possibility of passing such a law in Issaquah.
