SEN. SCHNEIDERMAN TO INTRODUCE THE STRANGULATION PREVENTION ACT— 3/16/10.
ALBANY -- On Tuesday March 16, domestic violence victims, law enforcement officials and advocates will join Senator Eric T. Schneiderman at a press conference to announce support for the Strangulation Prevention Act of 2010. The bipartisan bill (S.6987), sponsored by Senator Schneiderman and Assemblyman Joe Lentol, makes intentional strangulation and suffocation into unconsciousness a violent felony.
Intentional strangulation is one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence, but it's not a crime in New York State. This legislation changes that.
