Domestic Abusers Required to Have GPS Devices under New Michigan Law

By Sheryl Rentz on November 2, 2008

More and more states are opting to fit domestic abusers and stalkers with GPS devices to monitor whether these individuals violate restraining orders. According to this news report, Michigan’s new law allows judges to order domestic violence suspects to wear GPS devices even before they go to trial in order to help alert victims of domestic violence if abusers are in the vicinity.

This law in Michigan and other states has been prompted by a slew of killings of women by ex-husbands or estranged husbands. These murders occurred although the women had obtained court orders to protect themselves. GPS devices have been traditionally used to track sex offenders. But technology has advanced to such an extent that domestic violence victims can get a call to their cell phone if the offender gets too close to a specific victim – be it a spouse or a child.

This law is great from the victims’ point of view. Not only does it give them a heightened sense of security, but also it gives them their lives back. Our office has represented victims of domestic violence for a number of years. We have successfully obtained restraining orders for many of our clients to help keep them and their families safe from possible danger.
