Criminal Practice – Indecent Liberties – Minor’s Legs – Satellite-Based Monitoring – Sexually Violent Offense (access required)

State v. Sims The state presented sufficient evidence from which the jury could infer that defendant’s conduct was for the purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire: In three aisles at a Target store (1) defendant crouched down, looking at the juvenile’s legs; (2) defendant “fell into” the juvenile, wrapping his hands around her; and (3) defendant kneeled down, six to eight inches away from the juvenile’s legs. Another witness testified that defendant had complimented her legs, followed her into a store, and asked if he could hug her legs. Finally, Detective Benjamin testified that defendant admitted to having an obsession with women’s legs.
