Cracking down on officer assaults

WAVYSheriff Stolle was featured in a WAVY TV-10 story about the increase of assaults on law enforcement officers. “When you assault a police officer, you’re assaulting the society that you live in,” Virginia Beach Sheriff Ken Stolle said.

In 1994 when Stolle was in the State Senate, he amended a bill to raise the crime of assault on an officer from a misdemeanor to a felony. “You’re going to get convicted of a felony. You’re going to get a mandatory minimum of six months in jail. The judge can give up to five years if he or she wants to.”
