DIGEST FOR EHB 1080



Citations Affected: IC 11-8-8; IC 35-42.

Synopsis: Sex offenders. Conference committee report for EHB 1080. Provides that a person is a sex offender if the person commits sexual misconduct by a service provider with a child who is subject to lawful detention. Creates a defense to the offense of recruiting, harboring, or transporting a child less than sixteen years of age with the intent of inducing the child to participate in sexual conduct if: (1) the child is 14 or 15 years old and the person is less than 18 years old; or (2) the person is within four years of the child's age, the person was in a dating relationship with the child, and certain other conditions apply. Makes it sexual battery, a Class D felony, for a person to, with intent to arouse or satisfy the person's own sexual desires or the sexual desires of another person, touch another person's genitals, pubic area, buttocks, or female breast when that person is unaware that the touching is occurring. (This conference committee report: Provides that a person is a sex offender if the person commits sexual misconduct by a service provider with a detained child. Removes a provision urging the legislative council to study the topic of sexual battery during the 2012 legislative interim.)

Effective: July 1, 2012.
