Conklin Bill Seeks To Add More Protection For Domestic Violence Victims
Democratic State Rep. Scott Conklin, of Centre County, announced at a Monday news conference that he is introducing legislation that would allow electronic GPS monitoring of an alleged abuser in certain domestic violence cases.
Under the bill, courts could grant the monitoring in abuse cases while a protection from abuse order, commonly known as a PFA, is in effect.
A PFA bans a suspected abuser from harassing, stalking, threatening, or further abusing a protected person. Under Pennsylvania law, abuse is defined as causing or attempting to cause bodily harm, stalking, sexual assault, false imprisonment, and physical or sexual abuse of a minor.
Conklin says that electronic GPS monitoring would reinforce a very effective tool that can bring peace of mind to so many domestic violence victims who live in constant fear of their abuser and would allow law enforcement officers to get in front of a potential incident and stop it before it starts.
Upon introduction, the bill will be referred to a House committee for further review.
