47ABC spoke with defense attorney Luke Rommel about the bill. He says that everyone is entitled to a presumption of innocence, and just because there may be prior convictions, does not mean that you are necessarily guilty at the time of the trial. Cases of sexual offense are admittedly not Rommel’s focus, however he says that the legislation would be a fair change. He cites the narrow scope of the bill as a reason he supports it, as well as the fact that in the end allowing the evidence is at the Judge’s discretion.
