Representatives aim to increase penalties for assaulting licensed nurses

Under current Wisconsin law, a person who intentionally harms another person — including a nurse — can be charged with a Class A misdemeanor. This proposed bill would recategorize the level of offense to a Class H felony charge when the victim is a nurse.
