Md. Delegate has Court Date on Domestic Violence Order

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A judge will consider extending a protective order to keep a Maryland legislator away from someone concerned about potential domestic violence, according to online court records.

A hearing is scheduled Monday for Del. Hasan "Jay" Jalisi, D-Baltimore County, in Towson.

The records don't have details about who is seeking the order, or why. A temporary protective order to keep Jalisi away from the person has been in effect since Tuesday, and would need to be extended to last beyond Monday.

Jalisi was elected in November to represent District 10 in Baltimore County. He's a member of the House Judiciary Committee. He did not appear at a committee hearing on Friday, where several bills related to domestic violence that he is co-sponsoring were scheduled for hearings.

Jalisi didn't immediately return a call Friday to his cell phone seeking comment. A call to an attorney listed as representing him in this case also wasn't immediately returned.

The case was filed Feb. 24, three days after Baltimore County police responded to a call about an argument between Jalisi and his daughter. She told police the two struggled over her laptop computer, causing Jalisi to fall backward. She also told police that Jalisi slapped her in the face, according to a police incident report.

Jalisi told the officer that his daughter had been disrespectful and that he does not approve of her boyfriend. He also said he did not slap his daughter at any time, according to the report. However, his wife told the officer she observed him slap their daughter, prompting the woman and her son to intervene, according to the report.

No charges were filed in the case, because the officers did not witness the incident and there were no visible injuries, Cpl. John Wachter, a spokesman with the Baltimore County Police Department, wrote in an email Friday.

One of the domestic violence bills Jalisi co-sponsored would expand relief that could be awarded in an interim protective order to include any other relief a district court commissioner finds appropriate. Another bill he is co-sponsoring would alter the definition of abuse as it applies to petitions for domestic violence protective orders to include harassment, trespass and malicious destruction of property, if the person eligible for relief has not resided with the respondent for at least seven days before the filing of the petition.

    As Neglected Animals Recover, the Owner's Family Speaks Out

    The 31 dogs rescued from a home in Seaford are on the mend, officials say.

    "After our team worked to shave them down, we saw what we expected: that they were severely emaciated," says Brandywine Valley SPCA Georgetown Campus Director Walter Fenstermacher. "But what we didn't expect was how warm their personalities were and how forthcoming they were and wanted to be pet and loved by our staff members."
