First-degree child molestation sexual assault is when a person over the age of 18 engages in sexual penetration with an individual who is 14 years of age or younger. A conviction of this offense results in a prison sentence ranging from 25 years to a life sentence. Furthermore, it is also required to be electronically monitored via an active global positioning system for life.
Second-degree child molestation sexual assault is when a person over 18 years old engages in sexual contact with another individual 14 years of age or younger. It is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 30 years, which requires a minimum sentence of six years, costly fines, and inclusion into a sex offender database.
