Tennessee House Majority Leader Representative William Lamberth presented his Lifetime Order of Protection Bill to the House Civil Justice Committee. The bill provides lifetime orders of protection for victims of violent crime from those who committed the crime. Some refer to this as “Nikki’s bill,” given the continued harassment that Nikki Goeser has suffered from her husband’s murderer. Nikki was married for 16 months when her husband Ben was murdered in front of her by her stalker. The murderer/stalker has sent her twisted love letters from prison for many years. Incredibly, this murderer has received good-time early release credits by the Tennessee Department of Corrections even as he wrote these letters. Nikki is fighting for a Lifetime Order of Protection Law in TN. Nikki testifies here in support of the legislation.
