Massachusetts Bill Would Make Assaulting a Cop a Felony

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker is supporting a new bill before the state legislature that would enhance the penalties associated to the crime of assaulting a police officer.

Currently, assault on an officer is only a misdemeanor in the state of Massachusetts.

The proposed legislation would increase assaults against police officers resulting in "serious bodily injury" to a felony punishable by a minimum of one-year in jail (with a maximum of up to 10-years).
