O'Malley Speaks Out Against Domestic Violence

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The surest means of stopping domestic violence is early intervention, Gov. Martin O'Malley says.
    
O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown underscored their support for several domestic violence bills moving through the General Assembly at a rally Monday evening in Annapolis.
    
Brown spoke about his cousin's death in 2008 at the hands of her ex-boyfriend. He also emphasized the need to protect husbands and sons against domestic violence, not only wives and daughters.
    
The Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence organized Monday's rally.
    
Two of this year's bills make it easier for victims and potential victims to get protective orders. A third allows courts to impose an extra five years in prison for anyone who commits an act of domestic violence in front of a child.
