JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Gov. Sean Parnell has signed legislation that criminalizes cyber-bullying.

SB128, from Sen. Kevin Meyer, classifies as harassment the sending or publishing of electronic communications that insult or intimidate a minor in a way that that person is in fear of physical injury.

It was one of several bills signed by Parnell on Wednesday.

He also signed a bipartisan omnibus crime bill, which is aimed at reducing the number of reoffenders.
