This bill modifies the scope of the "Sexual Assault Survivor Protection Act of 2015," P.L.2015, c.147 (C.2C:14-13 et al.), as well as the enforcement of protective orders under the provisions of that act that help protect victims from offenders who committed actual or attempted nonconsensual sexual contact, sexual penetration, or lewdness. Specifically, the provisions of the bill: - remove the availability of protective orders for situations involving allegations of misconduct against an unemancipated minor by a parent, guardian, or other person having care, custody and control of that minor child, when such misconduct is being alleged by another parent or guardian. Such incidents are instead to be reported to the Division of Child Protection and Permanency in the Department of Children and Families for investigation and possible legal action under applicable existing law, including, when appropriate, petitioning the Superior Court pursuant to P.L.1974, c.119 (C.9:6-8.21 et seq.) for a protective order and other relief on behalf of the reporting parent or guardian and the unemancipated minor; - recognize and provide for the enforcement of protective orders entered under the provisions of a substantially similar sexual assault protection statute under the laws of another state or the United States; - distinguish between indictable and non-indictable violations of protective orders - a violation that constitutes a crime or disorderly persons offense would remain indictable (the violation is currently considered a crime of the fourth degree); a violation that does not amount to such illegal activity would be non-indictable (this violation would be newly considered to be a disorderly persons offense). Any such violation of a protective order, whether representing an indictable or non-indictable offense, would be adjudicated in the Superior Court; and - establish that the provisions of the "Sexual Assault Survivor Protection Act of 2015" apply to any act or attempted act of nonconsensual sexual contact, sexual penetration, or lewdness committed prior to, on, or after the act's effective date (May 7, 2016).
