AB 1498 (Campos)

Protective orders.



Current law authorizes a court to issue certain orders upon a good cause belief that harm to, or intimidation or dissuasion of, a victim or witness has occurred or is reasonably likely to occur, including a protective order enjoining a party from, among other things, molesting, attacking, threatening, sexually assaulting, harassing, contacting, or coming within a specified distance of the other party. This bill would apply these provisions cases where the defendant is charged with specified sex crimes, including rape, spousal rape, and crimes for which a person is required to register as a sex offender. Protective orders are one of the bases upon which a domestic violence can break a lease without penalty under current law.
