He pleaded guilty and got 30 months behind bars.
"I won't get this down in 30 months”, said Andrews. “I won't get it down in 30 years."
Andrews remains a victim of technology, as cyber crime can never be erased online.
Today, with lawmakers, she'll push for an update that makes cyber stalking a federal crime.
"Our laws are not as sophisticated as the crooks who are breaking them", said Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN).
When the Violence Against Women Act was passed in 1994, only 1 in 7 Americans used the Internet.
Today, 3 in 4 do--and a quarter of all stalking cases happen online.
"I would love to have a national policy established", reiterated Andrews.
THE NEW LAW WOULD:
- Make cyber-stalking (like stalking on social networks) a crime - Up the penalties for stalking kids - Create a database of cases - Make it easier to prosecute
"This will allow a person to be prosecuted even if the person who's being stalked is not aware of it", declared Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC).
It's one area where Democrats and Republicans agree: if criminals are in cyberspace--the law should be there, too.
Every year, over 3.5 million adults become the victim of a stalker—usually somebody they know.
