Joshua's Law headed to governor for signature
Joshua Savyon, 9, for whom Joshua's Law was named. He was killed by his father last August in Manchester at the YWCA visitation center on Concord Street.
Joshua's law, named after Joshua Savyon, who was killed by his father, Muni Savyon, would not change current law or enhance penalties but would gather existing laws under one section of the criminal code.
"By taking this important step, we will help law enforcement and prosecutors better identify and stop repeat abusers, while providing victims with access to support and protections as early as possible," Hassan said. "Although we will never be able to relieve the pain caused by the tragic murder of Joshua Savyon, enacting this bill in his memory will help countless families and communities."
