S.F. No. 2862 - Invasion of Privacy Penalty Enhancement; Predatory Offender Registration for Certain Stalking Crimes
Author: Senator Julie A. Rosen
Prepared By: Chris Turner, Senate Fiscal Analyst (651/296-4350)
Date: March 6, 2018


Section 1 requires persons convicted of the felony crime of stalking a minor with sexual intent under Minnesota Statutes, section 609.749, subdivision 3, paragraph (b), to register as a predatory offender under section 243.166.

Section 2 increases the penalty for a felony violation of section 609.746, subdivision 1 (Surreptitious Intrusion with an Observation Device) from a two-year to a four-year felony.  Under current law, the crime is a felony if the victim is under the age of 18 or if the offender has a prior conviction under this section or section 609.749 (Stalking).

Section 3 strikes “aggressive” intent from the definition of an aggravated violation of the stalking crime in section 609.749, subdivision 3, paragraph (b), when committed against a minor, to conform with the intent of section 1 of the bill.  Adds a paragraph (c) that reinstates the ten-year felony for the crime if committed with “aggressive” intent.
