Virginia Senate Passes Bill Removing Mandatory Jail Sentence for Assault on Police Officer


Currently, assaulting a police officer is a felony in Virginia that carries with it a mandatory jail sentence. The Virginia legislature wants to change that and has introduced a bill that would reduce the crime to a misdemeanor and remove the mandatory jail sentence for the assault.

The bill has already overwhelmingly passed the Virginia Senate in a 21-15 vote.

According to WSLS, here is a summary of Senate Bill 5032,

Eliminates the mandatory minimum term of confinement for an assault and battery committed against a judge; magistrate; law-enforcement officer; correctional officer; person directly involved in the care, treatment, or supervision of inmates; firefighter; or volunteer firefighter or any emergency medical services personnel and provides that such crime can no longer be committed as a simple assault and must result in a bodily injury.

Virginia has been underfire for a number of far left pieces of legislation that have been rushed through, including one that would make it illegal to criticize Virginia politicians on social media, another that would force churches to allow transgender people into the restroom of the opposite biological sex, another that would force churches and Christian schools to employ homosexuals, and another that would make it illegal to give help to homosexuals seeking relief from their aberrant sexuality.
