From Metcalf, Edgar County, Illinois – A videotaped confession and it gets a plea deal?
News story from WICD – Danville is here.
Keep in mind:
The legal components surrounding domestic violence are unlike any other crime. Officers have a specific duty to act in cases of domestic violence and are required to “use all reasonable means to prevent further abuse, neglect, or exploitation” (750 ILCS 60/303). This statue means all officers may be held liable if they fail to take sufficient action to prevent further harm to the victim.
