Anti-stalking bill passes House

Posted: Tuesday, April 23, 2002

JUNEAU (AP) -- The House of Representatives has passed legislation fixing a glitch in state laws related to stalking.

The bill's sponsor, Rep. Harry Crawford, D-Anchorage, said restraining orders are available to victims of domestic violence who know those threatening them. But the same protection is not available to people who are being stalked by strangers.

House Bill 317 would allow such victims to also apply for protective orders.

It passed the House unanimously on Monday and now goes to the Senate for consideration.
