Arizonans sign up for alternative address program

PHOENIX (AP) -

More than 70 Arizona families are using a year-old privacy shield provided by the state for victims of domestic violence, sex crimes and stalking.

The Secretary of State's Office says the Address Confidentiality Program provides a substitute lawful address to use for such purposes as work applications, court documents and voter registration.

The office says the service is free because costs are paid through a $50 fine assessed on people convicted of certain offenses.
