Legislation aimed at further protecting children from sexual predators on the Internet has been enacted.

Rep. Hudson (at the bill signing in June) was a prime sponsor of House Bill 256. Under the bill, a sexual predator is guilty of the charge of sexual solicitation of a child online whether the defendant solicits an actual child or an undercover investigator whom the predator believes to be a child. The bill also elevates that offense from a Class C to a Class B felony in cases in which the predator actually travels to meet the subject he is soliciting online, whether that subject is a child or an undercover investigator.
