This bill was inspired by my daughter and my families five year and horrible experience with a stalker 37 years older than her, starting when she was just 13 years old. I encourage you to consider keeping our children safe and this bill provides a steppingstone to begin this process. Technology has far surpassed our legislation and increasing penalties will become a deterrent against the stalkers. And the next thing we need to do is to take a close look at the 7.5 million stalking victims and the current legislation and why there are so many gaps allowing these predators to continue their actions. Our stalker used social media posting over 15,000 times about her, providing a detailed plan on how he was going to come get her on her 18th birthday. We prevented a more heinous crime but the process was grueling at best and my daughter and family will forever be looking over her shoulder. Please support this Combat Online Predators Act and help keep our children safe .
