Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Sexual offenses against children by a parent or grandparent; penalty.  Provides that sexual abuse of a child age 13-17 by a parent, step-parent, grandparent or step-grandparent is aggravated sexual battery, which is punishable by a term of imprisonment of one to 20 years.  The bill provides that for purposes of the crimes against nature statute, parent includes step-parent and grandparent includes step-grandparent.  The bill raises the age in the indecent liberties section from age 14 to age 15 and provides that violation of that section and certain violations of taking indecent liberties with a child by a person in a custodial or supervisory relationship, if the child aged 15 to 17 and is a child, step-child, grandchild or step-grandchild of the perpetrator, is a Class 5 felony.  If the child is less than 15 years of age it is a Class 4 felony.  The bill amends the taking indecent liberties with child by a person in custodial or supervisory relationship to state that it does not apply if the child is emancipated or if the perpetrator is legally married to the child.
