SB 1188 - This act creates the crime of "enticement of a child" when a person uses words, action, electronic mail, or any electronic communication in attempting to persuade any person less than sixteen years of age to leave home or school or persuade a child to enter an enclosed area to conceal the child from public view for the purpose of engaging in lewd, illicit or criminal conduct with the child. The penalty for enticement of a child is a Class A misdemeanor. If the person has already either pled guilty or been found guilty of violating this new section, Section 568.045, 568.050 or 568.060, RSMo, or Chapter 566, RSMo, the violation becomes a Class D felony.
This act is similar to SB 849 (2002).
