Minn. legislature to see domestic violence bills

Sen. Vickie Jensen

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Two proposals that would tighten Minnesota's domestic violence laws are expected to be introduced in the upcoming legislative session.

Owatonna Senator Vickie Jensen says the first would make certain victims are told not only when their abuser is released from prison, but where the offender will be living.

The second proposal would allow police to arrest a domestic abuse suspect without a warrant, and would remove the current requirement that any arrest be made within 24 hours of the alleged abuse.
