Groundbreaking Cyber Crime Bills Become Hawaii Law
As of July 10, four 2012 Legislative session bills to curb Hawaii's growing cyber crime trend have become law. A measure to combat cyber bullying (HB 2295) was signed by the Governor on June 28 and a measure to prohibit adults from soliciting minors to electronically transmit nude images of a minor(s) (SB 2222) was signed on July 3. On July 9, the Governor signed a measure to strengthen Hawaii's existing computer fraud and unauthorized computer access laws (HB 1788). The Governor signed a measure allowing out-of-state records to be subpoenaed in criminal cases (HB 1777) on July 10. Under these laws, prosecutors and law enforcement will have increased ability to investigate, obtain evidence, and bring cyber criminals to justice with new or stiffer penalties.
