JUNEAU — Gov. Sean Parnell has proposed legislation aimed at protecting vulnerable Alaskans — including the elderly and those with disabilities — from being unduly influenced, abandoned or taken advantage of financially.
The measure, introduced Wednesday, is part of a larger package of crime bills pushed by Parnell to protect those that he considers among the state’s most vulnerable residents.
Hearings have begun on his proposal that, among other things, would criminalize certain “sexting” and expand the definition of stalking.
