HB 1741 -- Sexual Offenses Involving Children

Sponsor:  Rizzo

This bill makes several changes to provisions relating to sexual
offenses committed against children.  The bill adds to the
definition of "sodomy in the first degree" the act of causing a
person less than 14 to have deviate sexual intercourse with an
animal or another person.

The bill changes the definition of "child molestation in the
first degree."  It may be committed when a person subjects a
child less than 14 to sexual contact.  Currently, child
molestation is committed when a child less than 12 is subjected
to such contact.  The bill also adds to the definition the
solicitation of a person less than 12 to have sex with any
person with the intent of arousal.

Child molestation in the second degree is changed to apply to
children at least 14 but less than 16.  Currently, it applies
only to children who are 12 or 13.  The bill also expands the
definition to include the solicitation of a person at least 14
but less than 16 to have sex with any person with the intent of
arousal.
