Regents postpone legislation on campus rape reporting

South Dakota higher education officials won’t ask state lawmakers to do away with a requirement that schools automatically report sexual assaults to police.

Mike Rush, executive director of the South Dakota Board of Regents, said Thursday that too many questions arose from law enforcement groups in trying to put together a legislative proposal that would allow the state’s six colleges and two special schools to provide confidential sexual assault reporting. Currently, when student victims of sexual assault come forward, school officials must file a report with law enforcement.

South Dakota statute says anyone with knowledge of a felony who doesn’t disclose that to the proper authorities could face misdemeanor charges punishable with up to one year in jail, a $2,000 fine or both.

Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel and a group of Republican legislators began a push Tuesday to crack down on child abusers with a package of bills that would make repeated abuse a formal crime and expand reporting requirements.

The Republican attorney general and Sen. Rob Cowles of Green Bay announced the legislation during a state Capitol news conference, saying the measures will help keep children safe.

One bill would create a new criminal charge for repeated acts of physical abuse of the same child. Penalties would vary from 15 years in prison and $50,000 in fines to life depending on the harm inflicted on the child.

Cyber crime legislation: Independent agency proposed in final draft

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Some stiff financial penalties have been proposed against those involved in cyber crimes, sources in the interior ministry said. The draft bill labelled as many as 25 crimes as being cyber crimes. It excluded from the process the role of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) proposing a new independent agency for dealing such technical cases. The new agency would be empowered to take action against fake account holders on social media, particularly on Facebook. Social media would also not allow to be used for hate speech and a propaganda tool of miscreants. The training for lower judiciary on the nature of technical aspects of such crimes is also part of the recommendations. Officials in the interior ministry told The Express Tribune that the new piece of legislation was made to achieve the goals set in the government’s counter terrorism strategy. The National Action Plan’s point number 14 reads: “Concrete measures against promotion of terrorism through internet and social media.” The Pakistan Tele-communication Authority (PTA) would be authorised to permanently block any objectionable website after getting input from the cyber crime agency. As per the bill, the agency can take notice of any crime attached with any electronic device, including mobile […]

Legislation Would Criminalize Revenge Porn; Allow Search Warrants for Cyber Crimes

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

[AG Harris] – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced a package of bills Monday that will increase protections for victims and provide tools for law enforcement to prosecute the growing number of cyber-exploitation cases in California. Cyber-exploitation, commonly known as revenge porn, is defined as the non-consensual distribution and publication of intimate photos and videos. The poster sometimes obtains the photos or videos during a prior relationship, or steals them by hacking into the victim’s phone, computer, or social media accounts. “Cyber-exploitation is a heinous crime that humiliates and degrades victims, while creating devastating effects on their personal and professional lives,” said Attorney General Harris. “This legislation will provide law enforcement with tools to prosecute these crimes, and provide critical support to victims suffering from the debilitating impacts.” Senate Bill 676 (Cannella, R-Ceres) would classify the intentional distribution of personal identifying information associated with the image of an intimate body part, obtained without the consent of the person depicted, as a new crime under Penal Code 647. Additionally, SB 676 would expand the forfeiture provision for possession of child pornography to include the forfeiture of cyber-exploitation images, allowing law enforcement to remove these images from unauthorized possession. “Several years ago, […]
