COLUMBIA — In a state among the worst in the nation in incidents of domestic violence, Statehouse lawmakers have taken a step toward teaching young people how to avoid such behavior.The South Carolina Senate passed legislation this week that would allow minors as young as 16 to get a court order of protection — without their parents' consent — when they are victims of domestic violence. Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, said offering domestic violence education at an early age is a key aspect of the bill."That hopefully gives them a chance to get out or to support their friends getting out of those relationships before they get too immersed in them and before serious violence happens," she said.One concern is the bill would align youths with the punishment levels for adults convicted of domestic violence.According to the bill, teens convicted would be guilty of a felony and serve a maximum of 10 years consecutive to any other charge.But the court would have to notify a parent or guardian within 24 hours after the order is issued.Teens under 16 still could seek a protection order but would need parental consent.
