Thanks, Kyle. This bill specifically addresses when a teacher grooms a 17 year old as a sexual predator, but wait until the child turns 18 before acting on it.

I have chosen Bill H.B. 257. Short Title, AGGRAVATED SEXUAL ABUSE OF A CHILD AMENDMENTS. To my understanding this bill is putting more into perspective what abuse of a child is and in what circumstances and to what degree the punishment will be for people in individual positions in a child life, in other words, if the person is considered to be in a "position of trust" or if it is a stranger, or human trafficking.
