Domestic Violence Evidence in IL

An Illinois appellate court recenty held that section 115-7.4 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 (Code) (725 ILCS 5/115-7.4 (West. Supp. 2007)), which allows prior acts of domestic battery to be admissible in a domestic battery trial, does not violate equal protection because it has sufficiently rational bases and offers relevance, probative value, and notice safeguards.  The case is People v. Dabbs, No. 3-08-0709 (Ill. Ct. App. 2010).  Read the opinion here.
