TITLE OF BILL:

the arts and cultural affairs law, the general business law, the labor
law and the civil practice law and rules, in relation to enacting the
"child sexual abuse and exploitation prevention act"; to amend
the penal law, in relation to creating the crime of criminal use of
encryption in the first and second degrees; to amend the penal law, the
criminal procedure law, the civil rights law, the executive law, the
family court act, the mental hygiene law, the multiple dwelling law, the
public health law, the alcoholic beverage control law, the real property

the vehicle and
traffic law, in relation to prostitution offenses and creating the crime
of sexual exploitation of a child; to amend the penal law, in relation
to computer sex crimes against children;
and
repealing certain provisions of the penal law relating thereto

PURPOSE:
This bill seeks to implement, in a comprehensive manner, the
recommendations of the Senate Republican Majority Task Force on
Critical Choices as called for in its 2007 Report entitled
"Protecting Children in the Internet Age". The report seeks the
enactment of a wide array of aggressive measures designed to protect
children from the dangers posed by Internet predators, child
pornography and child sexual abuse. The bill addresses child sexual
abuse, exploitation, pornography, and prostitution offenses and
computer sex crimes against children.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one of the bill is the
short title.

Section two of the bill provides legislative intent.

Sections 3, 4, 7, 10, 12, 18, 19, 20, 29, 34, 35, 36, 39, 40, 41, 42,
43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56 and 57 of the
bill are technical amendments to various laws reflecting the
substantive changes being proposed by this bill.

Section five of the bill permits the introduction of business records,
especially Internet Service Provider records, into evidence in grand
jury proceedings by way of sworn affidavit.

Section six of the bill addresses the content of any indictment
involving the use of a computer in the commission of a sex crime.

Section eight and nine of the bill authorize the issue of a
non-judicial subpoena in cases involving offenses against minors or
where the life or safety of any person is in imminent danger.

Section eleven of the bill adds a new paragraph (u) to subdivision 8
of section 700.05 of the criminal procedure law


Section thirteen and fourteen of the bill relate to the state's sexual
offender registration act (i.e. Megan's Law) and require registered
sex offenders to provide verification of their Internet accounts and
Internet screen names and permits DOS to provide this information to
Internet service providers.

Section fifteen of the bill repeals several sections of the Penal Law.

Section sixteen of the bill amends Section 60.13 of the Penal Law to
include sexual exploitation of a child.

Section seventeen of the bill amends Section 70.02 of the Penal Law to
add certain sexual crimes against children created by this bill to
the list of violent felony offenses.

Section twenty-one and twenty-two of the bill create new crimes
addressing criminal use of encryption.

Section twenty-three of the bill clarifies the crime of tampering with
physical evidence and the responsibility of Internet service
providers to retain physical evidence.

Section twenty-four of the bill defines the crime of criminal
prostitution, involving persons lawfully capable of consenting to
sexual conduct.

Section twenty-five of the bill defines unlawful prostitution,
involving persons who by virtue of their age are incapable of
consenting to sexual conduct.

Section twenty-six of the bill increases the penalties for patronizing
children who are being prostituted and to conform the penalties and
the age of the child being patronized to mirror the penalties for
engaging in acts of statutory rape as contained in article one thirty
of the penal law.

Section twenty-seven of the bill creates the crime of sexual
exploitation of a child, involving the use of a child under the age
of thirteen in the crime of prostitution. A person patronizing such
under aged children would be guilty of a class B felony.

Section twenty-eight of the bill would shift the burden to the
defendant who engaged in the sexual conduct with the under aged child
to show, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the defendant did
not have reasonable grounds to believe that the person was less than
the age specified.

Section thirty of this bill provides an affirmative defense for a
victim of sex trafficking to a charge of unlawful prostitution or
criminal prostitution.

Section thirty-one of this bill increases the age of the victim to
seventeen with regard to charging a person for promoting prostitution
in the second degree.


Section thirty-two of this bill increases the age of the victim to
seventeen with regard to charging a person for the crime of forcing
or intimidating a minor to engage in prostitution.

Section thirty-three of this bill creates a new crime which would
increase the penalty for persons who permit their premises to be used
for prostitution purposes involving children who cannot consent to
sexual conduct.

Section thirty-four of this bill removes the crimes of disseminating
indecent materials to minors from the penal law article related to
obscenity.

Section thirty-seven of this bill repeals the current article two
hundred sixty three relative to sexual performance by a child and
enacts a new article two hundred sixty three relative to child sexual
abuse, exploitation and pornography. The new article provides:

* uniform definitions for all crimes involving children in the area
of luring and child pornography;

* moves current legal prohibitions against luring children through the
use of a computer from the obscenity article to this new article;

* expands the luring of children for purpose of sexual offenses or the
production of child pornography to include the use of any telephonic
or electronic communications, such as wireless telephone text
messaging, or actual physical luring without the use of a computer or
other form of electronic communications;

* increases the penalties for the production and distribution of child
pornography, particularly for children under the age of eleven and by
parents; and

* increases the penalties for those who possess multiple child
pornography images.

Section thirty-eight of this bill adds certain crimes involving child
pornography, disseminating indecent materials to minors and computer
sex crimes to the list of eligible pattern criminal acts which
qualify as criminal acts for purposes of the state's enterprise
corruption crime (the RICO statute).

Section fifty-eight of the bill provides for the effective date, which
is the first of November next succeeding the date on which it shall
have become law.

JUSTIFICATION:
The molestation and sexual exploitation of children has been
identified as a major public health issue. It is estimated that there
are between 100,000 and 300,000 children sexually exploited annually
through prostitution and pornography in the United States.

Recent advances in computer technology have been aiding sexual
predators, stalkers, child pornographers, child traffickers, and
others with the intent of exploiting children, to commit their acts.
Internet bulletin boards, chat rooms, private web sites, and


peer-to-peer networks are being used daily by pedophiles to meet
unsuspecting children. Equally troubling is the fact that a greater
number of teenagers today are using the Internet daily and many enter
chat rooms, post personal information about themselves on bulletin
boards and establish their own web sites.

Perhaps the most disturbing consequence related to the Internet has
been the enormous increase in the production, sale, and dissemination
of child pornography. While the possession or distribution of child
pornography is illegal under federal law and in all 50 states,
according to researchers and law enforcement officials, this type of
crime is increasing at an alarming rate, fueled largely by the
capabilities of the Internet and modern technologies.

Statistics show that child pornography is the fastest-growing of all
Internet businesses; estimated to bring in several billion dollars a
year. Knowledge of these cold statistics will not alter the conduct
of those who take pleasure or profit in the exploitation of children.

In testimony before New York's Commission on Investigations, Ernie
Allen, Executive Director of the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children, indicated that of the thousands of offender's
successfully prosecuted for possession of child pornography:

80% had images of children less than 12
39% had images of children younger than 6
19% had images of children younger than 3

These are not pictures of nude children; these are pictures of
children being graphically sexually assaulted and raped. Allen told
the State Commission on Investigations that working with the Dallas
Police Department and Federal Law Enforcement the Center arrested a
Texas husband and wife who made child pornography - when they were
arrested they had 70,000 customers paying $30/month on credit cards
to access graphic images of small children being raped and sexually
assaulted.

Another perpetrator in Chicago organized a peer to peer network (no
ISP) so that people around
the world could log on at a predetermined time and witness, via a web
earn, an adult sexually assault an 18 month old child.

The Center has looked at about 6 million images and have identified
nearly 900 kids -- which just scratches the surface. Of these 900
kids, '40% of those who assaulted the kids and then distributed the
images on-line were their own parents. Another 30% were assaulted and
had these assaults distributed on-line either by family members,
friends or persons close to the children. Thus in only approximately
30% of this admittedly small sample were the assaults and child porn
distribution done by strangers.

The term "pornography" may give rise to discussions about what
constitutes art. It may invoke issues of free speech or censorship.
But no matter how one feels about pornography in general, child
pornography does not belong in that debate. No child is capable,
emotionally or legally. Of consenting to being photographed for
sexual purposes. Thus, every image of a sexually displayed child - be


it a photograph, a tape or a DVD - records both the rape of the child
and an act against humanity.

While some laws have been enacted to counter the spreading epidemic of
online crimes against children, additional laws are needed to stem
further spread and assist law enforcement with investigations. The
increasing number and complexity of these cases, coupled with the
rising sophistication of the perpetrators, have severely challenged
those committed to addressing these crimes. Small, rural communities
face serious constraints in responding to child abuse cases because
of limited resources, training, and personnel with specialized
knowledge of child abuse issues.

Research funded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited
Children found that forty percent of child pornography possessors
were "dual offenders," meaning they had also sexually victimized
children. Since the sexual abuse was discovered at the same time as
the possession of child pornography, there is a direct benefit to
aggressively combating child pornography. Another relevant finding in
the study was that the conviction rate for child pornography was
nearly 100 percent - this contrasts sharply with the much lower rate
of conviction for other crimes against children. Even in communities
with vast resources, the task of investigating and prosecuting child
abuse cases is overwhelming -- there may be little or no physical
evidence and the primary witness is often a child unable to withstand
a trial.

In addition, current laws governing statutory rape of a minor child
and prostitution by a minor child are at odds. A minor child under
the age of eighteen who accepts money or other valuable consideration
in exchange for sex is treated just like an adult and charged as a
criminal. At the same time, the penal law makes it a crime to engage
in sex with a minor under the age of seventeen. Common sense dictates
that children, who as a matter of law are incapable of consent to
sexual intercourse or anal or oral sexual conduct are actually
victims of sexual abuse by virtue of their age.

Individuals who engage in criminal sexual conduct with children should
not face lesser sentences because they paid for the criminal conduct.
Nor should pimps and other criminal sex abusers receive lesser
punishment because the minor being sold for sex or forced into such
activity is
sixteen years old. Sixteen year aids are incapable of consent to
sexual conduct as a matter of law and are victims. They deserve the
same protections other minor children receive from pimps and other
criminal sex abusers.

In addition, the law should make distinctions between children who are
incapable of consent as a matter of law and others who can consent to
sexual conduct. At the same time, recognizing that the law should not
encourage minors under the age of seventeen to engage in sexual
conduct and that criminally culpable minors ought to bear some
responsibility for engaging in illegal activity, prostitution by
criminally culpable minors should continue to be proscribed by the
penal law.

PURPOSE:

This bill seeks to implement, in a comprehensive manner, the
recommendations of the Senate Republican Majority Task Force on
Critical Choices as called for in its 2007 Report entitled
"Protecting Children in the Internet Age". The report seeks the
enactment of a wide array of aggressive measures designed to protect
children from the dangers posed by Internet predators, child
pornography and child sexual abuse. The bill addresses child sexual
abuse, exploitation, pornography, and prostitution offenses and
computer sex crimes against children.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one of the bill is the short title.

Section two of the bill provides legislative intent.

Sections 3, 4, 7, 10, 12, 18, 19, 20, 29, 34, 35, 36,
39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52 ,53,
54 ,55, 56 and 57 of the bill are technical amendments to
various laws reflecting the substantive changes being
proposed by this bill.

Section five of the bill permits the introduction of business records,
especially Internet Service Provider records, into evidence in grand
jury proceedings by way of sworn affidavit.

Section six of the bill addresses the content of any indictment
involving the use of a computer in the commission of a sex crime.

Section eight and nine of the bill authorize the issue of a
non-judicial subpoena in cases involving offenses against minors or
where the life or safety of any person is in imminent danger.

Section eleven of the bill adds a new paragraph (u) to subdivision 8
of section 700.05 of the criminal procedure law

Section thirteen and fourteen of the bill relate to the state's sexual
offender registration act (i.e.
Megan's Law) and require registered sex offenders to provide
verification of their Internet accounts and Internet screen names and
permits DCJS to provide this information to Internet service providers.

Section fifteen of the bill repeals several sections of the Penal Law.

Section sixteen of the bill amends Section 60.13 of the Penal Law to
include sexual exploitation of a child.

Section seventeen of the bill amends Section 70.02 of the Penal Law to
add certain sexual crimes against children created by this bill to
the list of violent felony offenses.

Section twenty-one and twenty-two of the bill create new crimes
addressing criminal use of encryption.

Section twenty-three of the bill clarifies the crime of tampering with
physical evidence and the responsibility of Internet service
providers to retain physical evidence.

Section twenty-four of the bill defines the crime of criminal
prostitution, involving persons lawfully capable of consenting to
sexual conduct.

Section twenty-five of the bill defines unlawful prostitution,
involving persons who by virtue of their age are incapable of
consenting to sexual conduct.

Section twenty-six of the bill increases the penalties for patronizing
children who are being prostituted and to conform the penalties and
the age of the child being patronized to mirror the penalties for
engaging in acts of statutory rape as contained in article one thirty
of the penal law.

Section twenty-seven of the bill creates the crime of sexual
exploitation of a child, involving the use of a child under the age
of thirteen in the crime of prostitution. A person patronizing such
under aged children would be guilty of a class B felony.

Section twenty-eight of the bill would shift the burden to the
defendant who engaged in the sexual conduct with the under aged child
to show, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the
defendant did not have reasonable grounds to believe that the person
was less than the age specified.

Section thirty of this bill provides an affirmative defense for a
victim of sex trafficking to a charge of unlawful prostitution or
criminal prostitution.

Section thirty-one of this bill increases the age of the victim to
seventeen with regard to charging a person for promoting prostitution
in the second degree.

Section thirty-two of this bill increases the age of the victim to
seventeen with regard to charging a person for the crime of forcing
or intimidating a minor to engage in prostitution.

Section thirty-three of this bill creates a new crime which would
increase the penalty for persons who permit their premises to be used
for prostitution purposes involving children who cannot consent to
sexual conduct.

Section thirty-four of this bill removes the crimes of disseminating
indecent materials to minors from the penal law article related to
obscenity.

Section thirty-seven of this bill repeals the current article two
hundred sixty three relative to sexual performance by a child and
enacts a new article two hundred sixty three relative to child sexual
abuse, exploitation and pornography. The new article provides:

* uniform definitions for all crimes involving children in the area of
luring and child pornography;
* moves current legal prohibitions against luring children through
the use of a computer from the obscenity article to this new article;
* expands the luring of children for purpose of sexual offenses or
the production of child pornography to include the use of any
telephonic or electronic communications, such as wireless telephone
text messaging, or actual physical luring without the use of a
computer or other form of electronic communications;
* increases the penalties for the production and distribution of child
pornography, particularly for children under the age of eleven and by
parents; and
* increases the penalties for those who possess
multiple child pornography images.

Section thirty-eight of this bill adds certain crimes involving child
pornography, disseminating indecent materials to minors and computer
sex crimes to the list of eligible pattern criminal acts which
qualify as criminal acts for purposes of the state's enterprise
corruption crime (the RICO statute).

Section fifty-eight of the bill provides for the effective date, which
is the first of November next succeeding the date on which it shall
have become law.

JUSTIFICATION:
The molestation and sexual exploitation of children has been
identified as a major public health issue. It is estimated that there
are between 100,000 and 300,000 children sexually exploited
annually through prostitution and pornography in the United States.

Recent advances in computer technology have been aiding sexual
predators, stalkers, child pornographers, child traffickers, and
others with the intent of exploiting children, to commit their acts.
Internet bulletin boards, chat rooms. private web sites, and
peer-to-peer networks are being used daily by pedophiles to meet
unsuspecting children. Equally troubling is the fact that a greater
number of teenagers today are using the Internet daily and many enter
chat rooms, post personal information about themselves on bulletin
boards and establish their own web sites.

Perhaps the most disturbing consequence related to the Internet has
been the enormous increase in the production, sale, and dissemination
of child pornography. While the possession or distribution of child
pornography is illegal under federal law and in all 50 states,
according to researchers and law enforcement officials, this type of
crime is increasing at an alarming rate, fueled largely by the
capabilities of the Internet and modern technologies.

Statistics show that child pornography is the fastest-growing of all
Internet businesses; estimated to bring in several billion dollars a
year. Knowledge of these cold statistics will not alter the conduct of
those who take pleasure or profit in the exploitation of children.

In testimony before New York's Commission on Investigations, Ernie
Allen, Executive Director of the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children, indicated that of the thousands of offender's
successfully prosecuted for possession of child pornography:

80% had images of children less than 12
39% had images of children younger than 6
19% had images of children younger than 3

These are not pictures of nude children; these are pictures of
children being graphically sexually assaulted and raped. Allen told
the State Commission on Investigations that working with the Dallas
police Department and Federal Law Enforcement the Center arrested a
Texas husband and wife who made child pornography -- when they were
arrested they had 70,000 customers paying $30/month on credit cards
to access graphic images of small children being raped and sexually
assaulted.

Another perpetrator in Chicago organized a peer to peer network (no
ISP) so that people around the world could log on at a predetermined
time and witness, via a web earn, an adult sexually assault an
18-month old child.

The Center has looked at about 6 million images and have identified
nearly 900 kids -- which just scratches the surface. Of these 900
kids, '40% of those who assaulted the kids and then distributed the
images on-line were their own parents. Another 30% were assaulted and
had these assaults distributed on-line either by family members,
friends or persons close to the children.
Thus in only approximately 30% of this admittedly small sample were
the assaults and child porn distribution done by strangers.

The term "pornography" may give rise to discussions about what
constitutes art. It may invoke
issues of free speech or censorship. But no matter how one feels about
pornography in general, child pornography does not belong in that
debate. No child is capable, emotionally or legally. Of consenting to
being photographed for sexual purposes. Thus, every image of a
sexually displayed child - be it a photograph, a tape or a DVD -
records both the rape of the child and an act against humanity.

While some laws have been enacted to counter the spreading epidemic of
online crimes against children, additional laws are needed to stem
further spread and assist law enforcement with investigations. The
increasing number and complexity of these cases, coupled with the
rising sophistication of the perpetrators, have severely challenged
those committed to addressing these crimes. Small, rural communities
face serious constraints in responding to child abuse cases because
of limited resources, training, and personnel with specialized
knowledge of child abuse issues.

Research funded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited
Children found that forty percent of child pornography possessors
were "dual offenders," meaning they had also sexually victimized
children. Since the sexual abuse was discovered at the same time as
the possession of child pornography, there is a direct benefit to
aggressively combating child pornography.
Another relevant finding in the study was that the conviction rate for
child pornography was nearly 100 percent - this contrasts sharply
with the much lower rate of conviction for other crimes against
children. Even in communities with vast resources, the task of
investigating and prosecuting child abuse cases is overwhelming --
there may be little or no physical evidence and the primary witness
is often a child unable to withstand a trial.

In addition, current laws governing statutory rape of a minor child
and prostitution by a minor child are at odds. A minor child under
the age of eighteen who accepts money or other valuable consideration
in exchange for sex is treated just like an adult and charged as a
criminal. At the same time, the penal law makes it a crime to engage

in sex with a minor under the age of seventeen. Common sense dictates
that children, who as a matter of law are incapable of consent to
sexual intercourse or anal or oral sexual conduct are actually
victims of sexual abuse by virtue of their age.

Individuals who engage in criminal sexual conduct with children should
not face lesser sentences because they paid for the criminal conduct.
Nor should pimps and other criminal sex abusers receive lesser
punishment because the minor being sold for sex or forced into such
activity is sixteen years old. Sixteen year aids are incapable of
consent to sexual conduct as a matter of law and are victims. They
deserve the same protections other minor children receive from pimps
and other criminal sex abusers.

In addition, the law should make distinctions between children who are
incapable of consent as a matter of law and others who can consent to
sexual conduct. At the same time, recognizing that the law should not
encourage minors under the age of seventeen to engage in sexual
conduct and that criminally culpable minors ought to bear some
responsibility for engaging in illegal activity, prostitution by
criminally culpable minors should continue to be proscribed by the
penal law.
