Description

Criminal sexual assault; definition of sexual abuse; complaining witness under age 13. Includes in the definition of "sexual abuse" the intentional touching of any part of a complaining witness's body, either on the skin or the material covering the complaining witness's body, if the complaining witness is under the age of 13 and the act is committed with the intent to sexually molest, arouse, or gratify any person. The bill repeals the current provision relating to adult penetration of the mouth of a child under the age of 13 with lascivious intent. Amends § 18.2-67.10, § 19.2-310.2, § 19.2-392.02, § 19.2-8, § 9.1-902, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
