Criminal laws are always influx and are forever changing. Case in point, on April 26, 2012, the US Senate sent the House a bill to renew and extend the Violence Against Women Act. The bill intends to cover: (1) gay men and undocumented immigrants who are abused by spouses or partners; and (2) children and the elderly and Native American women. It increases the number of visas available to battered women from abroad, and it sets criminal penalties for certain actions by international marriage brokers. In addition to the foregoing, the bill: (1) expands the availability of safe homes for victims of domestic violence; (2) makes it easier to bring charges against persons initiating obscene and/or harassing telephone calls under the Telecommunications Act, and (3) addresses rape and other sexual crimes on college campuses, by requiring schools to publish crime statistics.
