Kentucky state Rep. Lisa Willner wants to change the state's legal definition of "rioting" after fellow state Rep. Attica Scott. Scott was charged Thursday night with first-degree rioting, unlawful assembly and failure to disperse in Louisville.
"This bill request will be going in tomorrow. We will be calling this bill, Attica’s law,” Willner told WHAS.
Kentucky law currently states that participating in a riot where someone damages property is enough to face first-degree felony charges.
Scott calls the charges against her “ludicrous," saying she’s going to fight them.
