The bill expands the ways that intimidating a witness may be
committed by stating that the threat or act that constitutes intimidation can
be either direct or indirect. It adds that the threat or act that constitutes
intimidation can be directed at a person the perpetrator believes may have
information relevant to a criminal investigation or a person the perpetrator

believes may be able to exert influence upon a witness or victim.
The bill also adds that the crime of intimidating a witness can be
committed by intentionally attempting to influence, or actually
influencing, a witness, victim, or any other person with knowledge of
relevant information to withhold information from, or provide false
information to, law enforcement.
