Democratic lawmakers have proposed a new bill, the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act, which would allow a judge to offer alternative to incarceration programs or lesser prison terms for survivors convicted of crimes directly related to their abuse. One woman shares her story. Also, we discuss NYRA allegations, Joe Bruno's re-indictment, and President Obama's upcoming visit to upstate.
