A person convicted of "coercive control" could face a 14-year prison sentence under a shake-up of domestic abuse laws. Home Secretary Theresa May is expected to announce new powers which will put psychological abuse on a par with physical violence. It will criminalise for the first time those who use controlling behaviour, as well as violence, to subject their partners to a life of misery.

I think this law if this turns out to do a wealth of goodness it'd be a good idea to be implemented everywhere. What are ye're thoughts on this?
