Lucido votes to protect underage sex crime victims in schools

first_img Categories: Lucido News,News House approves legislation to safeguard students on school propertyState Rep. Peter Lucido today co-sponsored and voted for legislation to help protect students who are underage victims of sex crimes on school districts property.The three-bill package requires schools to permanently expel students who are convicted of criminal sexual conduct against another pupil enrolled in the same school district; prohibit an expelled student from attending another public school in Michigan unless they go through a reinstatement process; and, if a personal protection order is ordered for the victim of sexual assaults, the offender would be prohibited from entering the victim’s school.“It is simply ridiculous that underage victims and their assailants can be in the same classroom in the state of Michigan,” said Lucido of Shelby Township. “All victims of criminal sexual conduct deserve protection – whether they’re adults or kids in schools – but we have crime victims begging for protection and having to change schools. We need to change that.”Currently, a school is only required to expel a student who commits a sex crime on school grounds.“A school campus should be a safe education environment for all students and nothing more,” Lucido said. “Anyone who commits criminal sexual conduct is a threat to the entire school community and needs to be dealt with seriously.”House Bills 5530, 5531 and 5532 advance to the Senate for its consideration.##### 08Mar Lucido votes to protect underage sex crime victims in schoolslast_img read more

Rep Noble testifies on plan for Michigan to enter drivers license compact

first_img Categories: Noble News Legislation protects Michigan and out-of-state driversState Rep. Jeff Noble this week testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in support of his legislation to enter into an agreement with 45 other states to share driver’s license information.Noble said the agreement, known as the Driver’s License Interstate Compact, will allow states to work together to ensure bonds and citations are paid for if a driver is pulled over in another state.“This plan protects Michigan residents when driving in other states and gives travelers reassurance they will not be required to pay cash to law enforcement on the spot when receiving a citation,” said Noble, of Northville. “Currently, when an out-of-state driver gets pulled over by police they have to either buy a cash bond, have their driver’s license taken away or possibly go to jail. This plan ensures violations will be paid while also allowing drivers to be on their way after receiving a citation.”House Bill 6011 remains under consideration by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.### 31May Rep.
