'Alicia's Law' going back to Senate

A bipartisan bill that would direct more money and more tools toward fighting Internet crimes against children is headed back to the Senate after picking up a technical amendment in the Assembly.

The Assembly passed the bill 87-7.

Known as “Alicia’s law,” the legislation focuses on two elements in the fight against crimes against children: money and subpoenas. An earlier amendment to the bill would transfer $1 million from various state DOJ accounts to one that would be focused on criminal investigations of the crimes. The original bill would have raised the money through a $20 surcharge to misdemeanor convictions and $40 to felonies.

The bill also would give the AG authority to issue administrative subpoenas to gather from Internet providers the protocol records that identify users. An earlier amendment specifies the circumstances when that subpoena can be used and the information that can be obtained. The Assembly amendment tonight further narrowed those subpoena powers.

Assembly author Rep. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc, said the latest change in no way threatens the bill in the Senate.

Alicia Kozakiewicz, the bill’s namesake, was 13 when she met someone online, was lured from her home and taken across state lines. She was chained by the neck in a basement, she said, and kept there for four days and nights before a child task force rescued her after tracking the online photos her captor had posted of her on the Internet.
