ACLU expresses concerns over Parnell's crime bill

- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska is raising constitutional concerns with Governor Sean Parnell's crime bill. Parnell has made cracking down on domestic violence and sexual assault a priority for his administration. The bill would allow investigators to intercept private communications in sex trafficking cases. It would strengthen sentencing laws in child pornography and sex trafficking cases and allow judges to order GPS tracking of people with protective orders against them. ACLU argues that provisions of the bill are overreaching and could constitute a "shocking invasion" of personal privacy. The House and Senate Judiciary committees are scheduled to hear the proposal Monday. It is HB73 in the House, SB22 in the Senate.
