Indecent Liberties Charges in Richmond
Virginia Codes § 18.2-370 Explained
While sex crimes themselves are never taken lightly, when the sex crimes involve children, such as
carnal knowledge, the law enforcement and prosecution will punish and pursue even more ruthlessly. In the state of Virginia, taking indecent liberties with a child under the age of fifteen is considered an extremely serious criminal charge. This is legally defined as willingly and knowingly performing such acts as exposing your sexual parts, propose that the minor either expose themselves, touch your own sexual parts or allow you to touch theirs. It can also include proposing to perform a sexual activity or attempt to lure a child in a place for the purposes of the previously discussed actions.
