RD278 - Use of a Communication System to Facilitate Offenses Involving Children

Executive Summary:
During the 2005 Session of the Virginia General Assembly, the House Courts of Justice Committee referred the engrossed version of Senate Bill 1169 to the Crime Commission for an analysis of the proposed legislation and the statute which it would modify, Code of Virginia § 18.2-374.3. See Attachment A.

This statute was originally passed in 1992 and was amended in 1999. The statute in its current form has many cross-references to other Code sections. Although difficult to read, its two subsections are not inconsistent with each other.
