New law says individuals can't track each other via GPS once they are warned not to
Under a new state law that took effect on Tuesday in New York, it is now a crime for individuals to stalk each other using global positioning system devices.
But such conduct becomes a misdeameanor only after the target notifies the person responsible that such conduct is unwelcome, Syracuse.com reports.
Sticking a GPS device under another person’s car would still be legal, says attorney Casey Jordan of Tully Rickney, “if the person was not aware of it and didn’t demand it be removed.”
