Attorney General Hood said, “Although the law is not specific to domestic violence, this type of interference often occurs when the offender refuses to allow the victim to seek medical attention for treatment of injuries or yanks the phone cord out of the wall or tears up the cell phone to prevent the victim from calling 911 for help. This also occurs in non-domestic offenses as well, such as a carjacking or a burglary in which the victim is prevented from seeking assistance.” Click here to read further on the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office website.Type your paragraph here.
