Rep. Mark Rozzi pushes measures to protect children
By BETH BRELJE
A father determined to have abused his daughter was given court-ordered supervised visitation twice a week.For several years now, the child has been dragged, sobbing, into a visitation room to be with her abuser.
“His rights usurp hers by law,” said Danielle Pollack of the Bucks County Women’s Advocacy Coalition. “Current law allows for domestic abusers to have custody or eventual unsupervised visits with their victims. Why would we do this?”
Pollack was among the speakers at a press conference Monday hosted by State Rep. Mark Rozzi at the state Capitol.
