Louisville lawmaker introduces hate crime legislation

-A A +A

A Louisville lawmaker has introduced legislation that would make it a hate crime to attack police, firefighters and emergency medical responders.

House Bill 14 would allow a person to be found to have committed a hate crime if that person intentionally targeted a victim based on his or her employment or perceived employment in one of those fields. It can then be used as a sentencing factor if a court finds that a hate crime was the motivating factor of one of many felony offenses included within the bill.
