Today we learned that State Representative Eric Schleien has been charged with one count of sexual assault and two counts of simple assault against a 16-year-old girl. Representative Schleien is innocent until proven guilty, but these allegations are alarming. Sadly, cases of sexual violence in NH continue to grab national headlines, and a recent study by the CDC ranks NH as having one of the highest rates of sexual violence in the nation. In response, The Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence is working with state leaders to craft a comprehensive legislative agenda to address a number of inadequacies in our current sexual assault laws. In addition, we will work to help prevent sexual violence by working to establish opportunities for all students in NH to receive age-appropriate prevention education.
