Indecent liberties with children; penalties. Provides that it is a Class 5 felony if a person 18 years of age or older, with lascivious intent, knowingly and intentionally proposes that a child under the age of 15 years feels or fondles the child's own sexual or genital parts. Taking indecent liberties with a child by a person in a supervisory or custodial relationship is amended in the same way, but it applies to an unemancipated child under the age of 18 and is a Class 6 felony.
