Jackie’s Law

by GPS4US 2014-07-25 10:32

New York governor Andrew Cuomo struck a victory for domestic violence victims Wednesday, signing
“Jackie’s Law.”

The law is designed to help victims escape their abusers by giving police the power to charge those who
use GPS trackers to stalk their victims, without forcing the victims to press charges.

The legality of using GPS to track individuals has been under scrutiny in several states, and Jackie’s
Law marks a big win for domestic abuse survivors.

The law is names after Jackie Wisniewsi, who was murdered in 2012 by her boyfriend.

The boyfriend, Timothy Jorden, tracked Wisniewski through a GPS device he installed on her car. She
found it several seeks before her murder, but placing a GPS unit on another person’s car – even for
purposes of stalking – without consent wasn’t illegal at the time.

Jackie’s Law makes the act a felony punishable by up to four years in prison.
