SB 402 - Currently, a person commits the crime of tampering with a judicial officer if he or she threatens or commits certain acts for the purpose of harassing, intimidating, or influencing a judicial officer. Judicial officers include judges, arbitrators, special masters, juvenile court commissioners, probation or parole officers, and referees. This crime is a Class C felony.
This act would expand the crime of tampering with a judicial officer to prohibit such acts against prosecutors and assistant prosecutors.
This act is identical to SB 415 (2007) and similar to a provision of CCS/SS/SCS/HCS/HB 62 (2009).
