BOSTON — The young mother's long nightmare began to subside soon after her abusive ex-husband was outfitted with a satellite monitoring device that would electronically warn authorities if he ever got too close to her.

The woman, who requested anonymity, can now drive her children to the store again without going 45 minutes out of her way to avoid him. She can leave her home in eastern Massachusetts without agonizing about whether it would be better to wear a wig, or whether she could reach a police station if she saw him following her.
