Bill would create Web site of domestic violence convicts

YEEEESSSS....someone is finally trying to get this done! Let's all hope it goes through and that other states pick it up also......

"The new site would be a bit like a CARFAX report on potential suitors, where women and men could check a person’s past convictions for domestic abuse before getting intimately involved. Unlike the sex offender registry, the site would not include photos of the offenders listed. "

"In an attempt to avoid using public funding, authors of the bill hope to finance the Web site by charging the criminals themselves by tacking maintenance costs onto the fines for inclusive crimes. "

Well, those are the highlights of the article, just go read it....click this link:
