Relating to protective orders for certain victims of sexual assault or abuse, stalking, or trafficking.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 630 allows victims of trafficking to file a protective order or have their associated prosecuting attorney file such an order.  It also extends the ability for victims of sexual assault or abuse, stalking, or trafficking to seek a protective order during the post-conviction or post-offender-release phase.

Vote Recommendation Notes

SB 630 continues to protect the individual liberty of the of these crimes victims from perpetrators beyond what current statutes allow. This bill is a small step in the right direction of putting a greater priority on the victim being able to move on with their lives. We support SB 630 because it encourages our individual liberty principle.
