New Law Gives Developmentally Disabled Better Access To Justice

DENVER – A bill just signed in to Colorado law is aimed at giving the developmentally disabled better access to justice. The bill was created to allow hearsay testimony in cases where certain victims have developmental disabilities.
The bill was signed in to law at the Capitol Tuesday and for a Denver family they say it could mean justice for their daughter who was allegedly assaulted on her own school bus. When no charges were filed, the family says they had no choice but to support the bill.
