Those acts considered as lewd and lascivious battery by the State of California are prosecuted severely by authorities. The age of the child involved and the age of the defendant(s) are key in cases involving lewd and lascivious battery:

  • A sexual act with another person who is under 18.
  • Any person, over the age of 21, who participates in a sexual act with another person who is under 16 years of age.
  • Any person who participates in a sexual act with another person who is under 14 years of age and who is more than 10 years younger than the minor.
  • When a sexual act is performed with a child less than 14 years old and the age difference of the defendant is greater than 7 years.

Some of the acts relating to lewd and lascivious battery (with a minor) include:

  • Penetration
  • Penetration with a foreign object
  • Sodomy
  • Oral copulation
  • Coerced sexual penetration
  • Aiding and abetting any lewd and lascivious acts with a minor
