Prepare a paper that details your home state’s approach to sexual predators. Address following items in your paper:
Does your state have any laws that prohibit conduct that would be considered to be predatory?
What types of crimes are codified into law, misdemeanor, or felony?
What are the punishments?
Are there mandatory punishments, or do judges have discretion in sentencing a defendant after conviction?
According to the statutes that you research, is mere solicitation of improper activities enough for a prosecution, or must there be physical contact?
Provide your opinion on the statute(s) and their varying severity on sexual predators.
