Stalking, An Invisible Crime

Dec 16, 2013

River to River revisits the important subject of criminal stalking.

Though stalking became a crime in the state of Iowa in 1994, it’s a difficult charge since in many ways stalking is an “invisible" crime.  Often, victims of stalking have a hard time proving they are being terrorized.

Kristen Faisal from the Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Linda Kroon from the University of Iowa's Women’s Resource and Action Center, and Special Agent Jon Turbett from Iowa’s Division of Criminal Investigation join the program to this important subject.
