Current Bill Summary

SB 640 - Under this act, whenever a victim of a sexual offense initially makes a report of such offense to a law enforcement officer or a prosecuting attorney, such officer or attorney shall endeavor to inform the victim that he or she has the right to request a no contact order be issued against the alleged perpetrator and how the victim can obtain such an order.

Whenever a judge issues an arrest warrant for a person alleged to have committed a sexual offense, if a victim has requested a no contact order, the judge shall issue one at the same time. The order shall remain in effect until the criminal case is concluded. Any defendant who knowingly violates a no contact order shall have his or her bond revoked by the court.
