Gov. J.B. Pritzker has signed into law a measure that sets up protections for children in a court of law. When having to testify in abuse cases, they will not have to confront their alleged abusers. 

On Thursday, Pritzker signed House Bill 2607 into law. State Rep. Adam Niemerg, R-Dietrich, introduced the measure that states a child under 13 years of age shall testify outside the courtroom when warranted.
