 6        (720 ILCS 5/12-7.4) (from Ch. 38, par. 12-7.4)
 7        Sec. 12-7.4.  Aggravated stalking.
 8        (a)  A person commits aggravated stalking when he or she,
 9    in  conjunction with committing the offense of stalking, also
10    does any of the following:
11             (1)  causes bodily harm to the victim;
12             (2)  confines or restrains the victim; or
13             (3)  violates  a  temporary  restraining  order,  an
14        order of protection, or  an  injunction  prohibiting  the
15        behavior described in subsection (b)(1) of Section 214 of
16        the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986.
17        (b)  Sentence.   Aggravated  stalking  is  a  Class  2  3
