Bill affecting testimony by dependent persons and vulnerable adults

HB 2126 would provide accommodations for dependent persons and vulnerable adults who are witnesses and victims of crimes. The procedures parallel those currently available for child witnesses and victims. For example, they would be able to testify via closed circuit television in certain circumstances.
