Governor Wolf Signs Bill Strengthening Domestic Violence Laws Press Release, Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Wolf signed a bill sponsored by Representative Becky Corbin that amend Title 19 (Crimes and Offenses) to include strangulation as a form of assault. Prior to the signing of this bill, there was no criminal statute specifically addressing the act of intentionally impeding or interfering with a person’s breathing or circulation.“By signing this bill, I hope to prevent acts of non-lethal strangulation from later becoming domestic violence homicide and give law enforcement the tools they need to charge abusers to the fullest extent of the law,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “When someone experiences abuse, it does not affect just the victim. It hurts all of us and breaks down the bonds of trust in our communities.”A 2001 study from the Journal of Emergency Medicine found that 10 percent of violent deaths in the United States could be attributed to strangulation and most of those victims were women. Nearly half of domestic violence homicide victims reported being choked or strangled in at least one episode prior to their eventual homicide. This suggests that strangulation behavior is correlated with future homicide in domestic violence cases.Additionally, Governor Wolf signed the following three bills into law:Act 110 (Sainato) – Amends the Emergency & Law Enforcement Personnel Death Benefits Act providing for the payment of death benefits to members of the Pennsylvania Civil Air Patrol.Act 112 (Topper) – Act authorizing PA to join the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact; providing for the form of the compact; imposing additional powers & duties on Governor, Secretary of Commonwealth & Interstate Medical Licensure Compact.Act 113 (Baker) – Amends the Enforcement Officer Disability Benefits Law extending benefits to certain employees of the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission; and making editorial changes.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf October 26, 2016 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter
MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – Captain Eoin Morgan belted a blistering half-century as England chased down a record target at Old Trafford to beat Pakistan by five wickets in the second Twenty20 international on Sunday.Pakistan posted 195 for four in their 20 overs on a flat wicket, but the home side completed their victory with five balls to spare and a take 1-0 lead in the three-match series.Morgan blasted 66 from 33 balls to secure the win in what is the highest chase in any form of 20-over cricket at Old Trafford.Jonny Bairstow (44 from 24 balls) and Tom Banton (20 from 16 balls) got their side off to a fast start with an opening stand of 66 in 38 deliveries, but when they fell in consecutive balls to spinner Shadab Khan (3-34), the home side appeared to wobble.But Morgan and Dawid Malan (54 not out in 36 balls) led the counter-attack and accelerated as their third-wicket partnership grew, finishing with 112 in 62 balls before the skipper was caught in the deep with the side still needing 18 runs to win.Pakistan also got their runs at the top of the order as opener Babar Azam smashed 56 from 44 balls in an opening stand of 72 with Fakhar Zaman (36 from 22 balls).Number three Mohammad Hafeez carried on that momentum with a blistering assault on the home bowlers, who struggled to find the right length and too often dropped too short, exposing the square boundaries.Hafeez struck four sixes in his 69 from 36 balls before offering a simple catch to Morgan at cover.The pick of the England bowlers was leg-spinner Adil Rashid, who recorded figures of 2-32 as he picked up the wickets of both openers.The third and final match in the series will be at the same venue on Tuesday. The first match was abandoned due to rain.
