Guidance on Danger Assessments and Gwen’s Law

On August 1, 2014, Act 318, commonly referred to as ‘Gwen’s Law’, went into effect throughout the state of Louisiana.  Gwen’s Law instructs courts to conduct a danger assessment and take that into account when determining bail in felony offenses committed against a family or household member or dating partner.

LCADV has issued a memo that seeks to provide professionals working on domestic violence cases guidance on danger assessments and their implementation.
