HB 2400: Indecent Assault

H.B. 1400, P.N. 1688 (O’BRIEN) This would amend Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses).
This would expand the crime of “indecent assault” to include intentionally causing a complainant to come into contact with bodily fluids for purposes of sexual arousal.
This would increase the crime of indecent assault by forcible compulsion, by threat, when a person is unconscious, when a person is substantially impaired, or when a person has a mental disability rendering the complainant incapable of consent, from a second degree misdemeanor to a first degree misdemeanor. Indecent assault that is a second or subsequent offense or that includes touching sexual or intimate parts would be a third degree felony.
