Vainieri Huttle, Holley & Downey Bill to Strengthen Protections for Victims of Sexual Assault Becomes Law(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Jamel Holley and Joann Downey to strengthen protections for survivors of sexual assault was signed into law on Monday.
The new law (formerly bill A-4207) modifies the scope of the "Sexual Assault Survivor Protection Act of 2015," as well as the enforcement of protective orders under the provisions of that act that help protect victims from offenders who committed actual or attempted nonconsensual sexual contact, sexual penetration, or lewdness.
