MN: Upcoming sex offense bills

[leg.mn.gov]

Minnesota State Legislature bill search by “Crimes and Criminals-Sexual Offenses”

The following is a partial list of proposed bills / laws regarding sex offenses that could possibly be up for a vote this legislative session.

Use the link above to do a current search.

1. SF1730 / No HR introduced – Sex trafficking of a child added to the definition of “Substantial Child Endangerment”

2. SF1466 / HF409 – Terminating parental rights of the perpetrator for any child conceived due to the commission of a sexual conduct crime. This includes termination or parental rights even where there was consent but the victim was too young to give the consent. Specifically notes that this termination of rights does not affect child support requirements.

3. SF515 / HF1211 – Eliminates the 9 year statute of limitations for sex offenses against minors.

4. SF1220 – Increases child pornography penalties and sets minimum prison sentences of 5 years for simple dissemination, 15 years for dissemination for profit, and 25 years for production.

5. SF1451 / HF1276 – Creates an exception to child pornography charges if the images contain only images of oneself.

6. SF1683 / HF707 – Reclassifies criminal sexual conduct crimes in many ways.
a. Criminalizes conduct when one someone is under the influence even when the person under the influence initiated the contact if they decided later that they were too under the influence to make the decision.
b. Adds a whole bunch of definitions to “Prohibited Occupational Relationship”
c. Elevates certain crimes against minors that were previously 3rd Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct to 1st Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct (Sexual contact with a 13 year old was previously 3rd degree and would now be 1st degree).
d. Adds a number of new sex crimes against other adults for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th degree criminal sexual conduct (all felonies) that would previously have been classified as 5th degree criminal sexual conduct, a gross misdemeanor.
e. Reclassifies some 5th degree criminal sexual conduct as a felony instead of a gross misdemeanor.
f. Adds a new sex crime of of Sexual Extortion (looks like it is meant to address dissemination of sexual photos by making threats among other things).

SF222 / HF209 – Requires disclosure of level 2 sex offenders to any public official that are likely to visit the offenders home such as property assessors and city code enforcement officers. This still does not make level 2 data public. Currently Level 2 offender data is disclosed under some other limited circumstances.

SF903 / HF1180 – Expands situations where an out of state offender would need to register in MN. (Mostly its just a re-wording though probably due to a court decision).

SF1946 / HF1873 – Modifies sentencing guidelines so that certain sex offenses against minors count towards more criminal history points if you are charged with another crime (even when the new crime isn’t sex related).

Can we just sell Minnesota to the highest bidder?

CAC, the easiest path to unobstructed legislative agenda. Now all they have to do is make EVERY so case into a CAC case, maybe even if there was no “crime” or “victim”.

Look over there, that’s a breach in the separation of powers! Too late, they found it first.

If SF1220 passes, could a citizen demand that ICAC agents be charged with distribution? I would argue that it was certainly for profit – the budgets for those stupid stings is likely pretty substantial.

So if a 16 year old and a 18 year old have a baby the older patient looses all his parental rights .
Daam what’s just savage sex offenders are modern day slaves and will be treated as so if you don’t do as your told or try to escape your sent to the prison death camps a forced into free labor.

Good luck
