CONCORD, NH — New Hampshire's governor signed two bills into law addressing sexual assault, misconduct, and other related offenses as well as closing a loophole in state law which allowed persons of authority to abuse young people in their care.
"The bills signed today represent the most sweeping collective improvements to laws regarding child abuse and domestic and sexual assault in recent history," Grady Sexton said. "This legislation could not be timelier. Expanding vital protections, services, and support, especially amidst this global pandemic, will improve the lives of survivors, who are under incredible pressure and danger due to the fallout of COVID-19."
