Its Not a Private Matter. Its a Crime.
The Legal System Task Force focuses on the Central Ohio criminal justice
system our courts, police, prosecutors and advocates. When victims
end up in court, too often the system fails to protect them. A study commissioned
by the Coalition found that a typical sentence for a batterer is probation
and a $30 fine less than the cost of a typical speeding ticket.
Domestic violence crimes clog the Franklin County Municipal Court, and
court records show a high number of repeat offenders and dismissals.
The Legal System Task Force is focused on reform through providing legal
assistance for victims, judicial reform, and improved training of law
enforcement officers and prosecutors.
