Our daughter Sierra Landry was killed by her abusive ex-boyfriend.
An Order of Protection could have saved her life, but according to South Carolina law, she was too young to get one.Every time Sierra left Crolley he would find a way to stalk and harass her.He would continually call her phone, leave messages on Facebook making her feel like everything was her fault, and ride by our home over and over again. We were so relieved and so excited that Sierra had ended the relationship she had with Crolley.According to Breakthecycle.org, South Carolina has some of the weakest laws about teen dating violence in the U. Sierra’s Law would make the following important changes: - Orders of Protection would be available to minors 16 years of age and older without parental or guardian consent, however parents or guardian will be notified within a 24 hour period; minors under the age of 16 are allowed to obtain an OP with parental or guardian consent.This applies to all people in dating relationships, including same-sex couples - Abusers with a history of domestic violence will be placed on a registry for publication and acknowledgement to the community and state.Sierra would tell Crolley to leave her alone and that they were over, but Crolley would never take “NO” for an answer.
