State Representative Dan Beiser (D-Alton)As National Domestic Violence Awareness Month draws to a close, State Representative Dan Beiser (D-Alton) reminds there is a new law on the books to address repeat offenders.  Enhanced and graduated penalties under the new law would mean an offender with prior convictions could be sentenced to as many as seven years in prison.

Beiser says he is always looking for ways to hold abusers accountable for their actions.

Beiser comments

Recent statistics from the Illinois State Police indicate there are more than 100,000 cases of domestic abuse in Illinois every year, with more cases that go unreported, according to Beiser
