Description

Protective orders; availability; penalty.  Renames "protective orders for stalking" as "protective orders" and expands the class of persons who is eligible to obtain a protective order to include persons who have been subjected to assault or any conduct that creates a reasonable fear of death or where a warrant or petition for arrest for such conduct has been issued. The bill also authorizes a law-enforcement officer to request an extension of an emergency protective order, not to exceed three days, for a person in need of protection who is physically or mentally incapable of filing a petition for a preliminary or permanent protective order. The bill also makes the penalties for violating a protective order consistent with the penalties for violating a family abuse protective order: (i) any person convicted of a second violation of a protective order, when the offense is committed within five years of a conviction for a prior offense and when either the instant or prior offense was based on an act or threat of violence, shall be sentenced to a mandatory minimum term of confinement of 60 days; (ii) any person convicted of a third or subsequent offense, when such offense is committed within 20 years of the first conviction and when either the instant or any of the prior offenses was based on an act or threat of violence, is guilty of a Class 6 felony and punishment shall include a mandatory minimum term of confinement of six months; (iii) any person who commits an assault and battery resulting in serious bodily injury upon a person protected by a protective order is guilty of a Class 6 felony; and (iv) any person who violates a protective order by furtively entering the home of the protected party while such party is present or enters and remains in such home until the protected party arrives is guilty of a Class 6 felony. The bill also provides that any person convicted of violating a protective order for which no mandatory minimum sentence is specified shall be sentenced to a term of confinement and shall not have his entire sentence suspended. Amends § 16.1-228, § 16.1-253.1, § 16.1-253.4, § 16.1-279.1, § 16.1-69.55, § 17.1-213, § 17.1-272, § 18.2-60.4, § 19.2-120, § 19.2-152.10, § 19.2-152.8, § 19.2-152.9, § 19.2-81.3, of the Code of Virginia.
