Parnell Signs Crime, Electronic Bullying Bills
Updated On: Jul 17 2014 06:00:00 AM AKDT
Gov. Sean Parnell has signed legislation that criminalizes cyber-bullying.
SB128, from Sen. Kevin Meyer, classifies as harassment the sending or publishing of electronic communications that insult or intimidate a minor in a way that that person is in fear of physical injury.
It was one of several bills signed by Parnell on Wednesday.
He also signed a bipartisan omnibus crime bill, which is aimed at reducing the number of reoffenders.
