On October 31st, we traveled to Montgomery to attend the bill signing of Hollie’s Law, which makes it a capital murder to kill a parent in the presence of their child. This law is in honor of Hollie Newbury, who was murdered in front of her two small children in Lauderdale County in 2009.
Those of us at One Place are honored to not only call the Newbury family our friends, but to also consider them as part of our family. We are thankful for their courage and patience throughout the process of seeing Hollie’s Law become a reality.
We hope we never have to use Hollie’s Law, but we feel it’s important to protect our children.
