Maine Governor Proposes Ankle Bracelets in Domestic Abuse Cases
AUGUSTA, Maine – Gov. Paul LePage says people accused of committing domestic violence should have to wear an ankle bracelet as a condition of bail.
During a State House press conference held by the Maine Domestic Abuse Review Panel, the governor promised to propose legislation to that effect.
The panel found that nearly half of all the homicides committed in the last 10 years were perpetrated by domestic violence abusers.
