PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota legislative panel studying the state’s domestic abuse laws will hold hearings across the state later this month to take public comments.

The committee is asking people to discuss their experiences with the domestic abuse laws. The testimony should focus on South Dakota’s legal definition of domestic abuse, protection orders, reporting processes and other related issues.

The committee says its study is not focusing on custody of children, causes of domestic abuse or rehabilitation.

The hearings will be held at 6 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Sioux Falls Public Library Main Branch, 6 p.m. Aug. 22 at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel in Aberdeen, 5:15 p.m. Aug. 26 at the Yankton Public Library, and 6 p.m. Aug. 27 at the Rapid City Public Library Main Branch.
