Gov. Chris Sununu wants lawmakers in the New Hampshire house to get behind a bill strengthening New Hampshire's rape shield law.
The legislation is also backed by the family of Lizzi Marriott, the UNH student murdered 5 years ago by Seth Mazzaglia.
This bill springs from the legal strategy of Seth Mazzaglia’s defense team, which sought to introduce evidence about Marriott’s sexual past during Mazzaglia’s murder trial.
The state’s highest court initially suggested that lMazzagia might be able to use such evidence during his appeal, before ruling it inadmissible.
