Lewd conduct, minors, penalty
LEWD CONDUCT WITH A MINOR CHILD – Amends existing law to revise the penalty for lewd conduct with a minor child and to revise provisions regarding sentencing in capital cases.

RS31164C1 / H0515

This legislation amends Idaho Codes 18-1508 and 19-2515 to allow a sentence of capital punishment for a person convicted of lewd conduct with a minor, if said minor is under the age of twelve (12) and there are aggravating circumstances. Upon conviction, a jury will make the decision of whether to implement the death penalty. A judge may decide the sentence if a jury is waived by the defendant.

This legislation may cause indeterminate additional expenditure of funds at the state or local level of government. It does not cause a known increase or decrease in revenue for state or local government, therefore the legislation has no known fiscal impact.
