Sen. Darrell Weaver, R-Moore, filed legislation to enhance protective order enforcement in the state of Oklahoma. Senate Bill 1710 provides courts with the authority to require violators of a protective order to use a GPS monitoring device ahead of a trial. Furthermore, for repeat violations, the bill empowers the court to detain the defendant in the county jail without bond until trial.
