California Lawmakers Approve Bill to Reduce Penalties for Sex with Minors

One State Senator blamed ‘MAGA/Qanon’ for bringing attention to the bill, causing the current state of controversy.

As the US Marshal service continues their work to end child sex trafficking, California is looking to less the penalties incurred by those who fornicate with minors.

Just days ago, Marshals announced that they had discovered the location of, or actively recovered, 39 missing and exploited children, some of whom had been absconded with for the expressed purpose of terribly heinous things.  This week, the high level law enforcement agency announced that they had followed up their Peach State success by saving more than two dozen more children in Ohio.

It’s a sad reality here in America, that many of our nation’s children face the threat of such a horrific fate.  At the crux of the issue is pedophilia – a sick and wicked act, the mere mention of which will make the blood boil.

And then there is California.

California lawmakers passed a bill Monday that would reduce penalties for adults who have oral or anal sex with a willing minor child if the sex offender is within ten years of the age of the victim.

The bill now heads to the desk of Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).

Wait.  What?!

According to SB 145, the legislation “would exempt from mandatory registration” as a sex offender “a person convicted of certain offenses involving minors if the person is not more than 10 years older than the minor and if that offense is the only one requiring the person to register.”

The measure would allow a judge to decide if an adult who engages in oral or anal sex with a child must register as a sex offender if that person is within ten years of the age of the victim.

Proponents of the bill have come under heavy fire in recent weeks, but have attempted to shift the blame for this controversy to those who oppose the bill, with one lawmaker even suggesting that “MAGA/Qanon” is at fault.
