SALT LAKE CITY — A bill aimed at protecting children in certain judicial proceedings involving child custody and parent time has made its way out of committee.
The House Judiciary Committee heard HB 272, also known as ‘Om’s Law,’ Thursday morning.
The bill is named after 16-year-old Om Gandhi. Om was killed by his father, 49-year-old Parth Gandhi, a local neuropsychologist on Mother’s Day weekend last year.
“I can’t imagine really anything better to have his name on and his honor,” said Leah Moses, Om’s Mother.
Moses gave a heartbreaking and chilling testimony to the committee. Read more here.
