Hate Crimes Vote 05-02-19

A legislative committee voted to make it a hate crime to target someone because of their sexual orientation or their employment as a law enforcement officer.

The senate judiciary committee on wednesday took up a bill, to add police officers to the groups covered by alabama's hate crime law.

Current law allows heightened penalties if crimes were motivated by the victim's race, religion, national origin, ethnicity or disability.

Sen.

Vivian davis figures, a mobile democrat, added an amendment to include crimes that target someone because of their sexual orientation.

The committee approved the amendment and bill, which now moves to the full senate.
