Introduced  by  Sen.  BAILEY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

AN ACT to amend the family court act, the criminal  procedure  law,  and
  the  domestic  relations law, in relation to prohibiting a party to an
  order of protection from remotely controlling any connected devices of
  a person protected by such order

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Subdivision 1 of section 352.3 of the family court act, as
amended by chapter 532 of the laws  of  2008,  is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  (1)  Upon  the  issuance  of an order pursuant to section 315.3 or the
entry of an order of disposition pursuant to section 352.2, a court  may
enter  an  order  of  protection  against  any respondent for good cause
shown. The order may require that the respondent: (a) stay away from the
home, school, business or place of employment  of  the  victims  of  the
alleged  offense; or (b) refrain from harassing, intimidating, threaten-
ing or otherwise interfering with the victim or victims of  the  alleged
offense  and  such  members of the family or household of such victim or
victims as shall be specifically named by the court in  such  order;  or
(c)  refrain  from intentionally injuring or killing, without justifica-
tion, any companion animal the respondent knows to be owned,  possessed,
leased,  kept  or  held  by the person protected by the order or a minor
child residing in such person's household; OR (D) REFRAIN FROM  REMOTELY
CONTROLLING ANY CONNECTED DEVICES AFFECTING THE HOME, VEHICLE OR PROPER-
TY  OF THE PERSON PROTECTED BY THE ORDER. "Companion animal", as used in
this subdivision, shall have the same meaning as in subdivision five  of
section  three  hundred  fifty  of  the  agriculture  and  markets  law.
"CONNECTED DEVICE", AS USED IN THIS SUBDIVISION, SHALL MEAN ANY  DEVICE,
OR  OTHER PHYSICAL OBJECT THAT IS CAPABLE OF CONNECTING TO THE INTERNET,
DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY,  AND  THAT  IS  ASSIGNED  AN  INTERNET  PROTOCOL
ADDRESS OR BLUETOOTH ADDRESS.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
