DES MOINES, Iowa — A bill to come down harder on repeat domestic abusers is moving ahead in the Statehouse.
Tuesday the Iowa House passed a bill that would require those who have been convicted three separate times to serve at least 80 percent of their sentence.
The bill came about, in part, thanks to Tiffany Allison. In 2009, her boyfriend at the time attacked her, but went on to serve less than half of his sentence.
Once out, he attacked another woman.
The bill now heads to the Iowa Senate.
