That Section 39-6302, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby 26 amended to read as follows: 27 39-6302. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE. For purposes of this chapter, the legisla- 28 ture adopts by reference the declaration of policy in section 39-5201, Idaho 29 Code. Additionally, the legislature finds that a significant number of homi- 30 cides, aggravated assaults, and assaults and batteries occur within the home 31 between adult members of families. Furthermore, research shows that domestic 32 violence is a crime which can be deterred, prevented or reduced by legal 33 intervention. Domestic violence can also be deterred, prevented or reduced by 34 vigorous prosecution by law enforcement agencies and prosecutors and by appro- 35 priate attention and concern by the courts whenever reasonable cause exists 36 for arrest and prosecution. 37 The purpose of this act is to address domestic violence as a serious crime 38 against society and to assure the victims of domestic violence the protection 39 from abuse which the law and those who enforce the law can provide. 40 It is the intent of the legislature to expand the ability of the courts to 41 assist victims by providing a legal means for victims of domestic violence to 42 seek protection orders to prevent such further incidents of abuse. It is the 43 intent of the legislature that the official response to cases of domestic vio- 2 1 lence shall stress the enforcement of the laws to protect the victim and shall 2 communicate the attitude that violent behavior in the home is criminal behav- 3 ior and will not be tolerated. It is the intent of the legislature to 4 presume the validity of protection orders issued by courts in all states, the 5 District of Columbia, United States territories and all federally recognized 6 Indian tribes within the United States, and to afford full faith and credit 7 to those orders. The provisions of this chapter are to be construed 8 liberally to promote these purposes. 9 SECTION 2. That Section 39-6303, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby 10 amended to read as follows: 11 39-6303. DEFINITIONS. (1) "Domestic violence" means the physical injury, 12 sexual abuse or forced imprisonment or threat thereof of a family or household 13 member. 14 (2) "Family or household member" means spouses, former spouses, persons 15 related by blood or marriage, persons who reside or have resided together, and 16 persons who have a child in common regardless of whether they have been mar- 17 ried or have lived together at any time. 18 (3) "Family dwelling" is any premises in which the petitioner resides. 19 (4) "Judicial day" means any day upon which court business may be trans- 20 acted as provided in sections 1-1606 and 1-1607, Idaho Code. 21 (5) "Protection order" means any order issued for the purpose of 22 preventing violent or threatening acts or acts of harassment against, or con- 23 tact or communication with, or physical proximity to, another person, where 24 the order was issued: 25 (a) Pursuant to this chapter; 26 (b) In another jurisdiction pursuant to a provision similar to section 27 39-6306, Idaho Code; or 28 (c) In any criminal or civil action, as a temporary or final order (other 29 than a support or child custody order), and where the order was issued in 30 a response to a criminal complaint, petition or motion filed by or on 31 behalf of a person seeking protection, and issued after giving notice and 32 an opportunity to respond to the person being restrained. 33 SECTION 3.
