“Proving a Minor’s Sexual Purpose for Sexual Assault Crimes” by Jessica Smith

Please take a moment to read Professor Jessica Smith’s newest post on In re S.A.A., the recent Court of Appeals opinion regarding what circumstances are needed to prove sexual assault.  The blog also includes additional case law to help defenders when analyzing whether or not the State can prove the element of sexual purpose in sexual assault petitions.  The full article can be found here for your reading pleasure.  Other information regarding these cases can also be found under the “Case Summaries” section of our “Materials for Defenders” page.
