Sex Crime Laws in Idaho
Sex crime laws in Idaho define how sexual abuse is committed. In general, nonconsensual touching of private parts (or overt sexual acts) is considered sexual abuse; however, there is a difference between a felony and a misdemeanor. In some cases, individuals might be charged with a misdemeanor called sexual battery. This is non-consensual touching of the private parts.
On the other hand, some people might be charged with felony sexual assault. This involves sexual acts, forcible penetration, or statutory rape. The penalties for felony sexual assault in Idaho are serious.
