Penalties related to Child Abuse
A charge under the Penal Code makes it a crime to touch a child under the age of 14 with a sexual intent. Every discreet act of touching with sexual intent can be charged as a separate count. Under the law, a child under 14 cannot consent; therefore the child's "consent" to the touching is not a defense. Nor is there a defense of mistaken age of the child, even if the child appeared to be and/or claimed to be much older.
The penalties related to child abuse are very high and in most of the cases there is no opportunity for parole or probation. Once a person has been convicted under this charge the offender has to be listed on sex offender registry for at least 10 years and with internet this can virtually be a lifetime of pain
