Idaho Sex Offenses and Why They are Different

Sex offenses in Idaho are crimes with a sexual undertone. Common sex offenses in Idaho are rape, sexual battery, lewd and lascivious conduct. Sex offenses are different from other crimes because of the way society construes such crimes. Because they are crimes against persons, every convicted sex offender in the state undergoes specific assessments from the Idaho Department of Correction. The evaluation result will determine the supervision and risk level of the convicted sex offender. Sex crimes are grouped as either misdemeanors or felonies based on factors such as the age of the involved parties and the severity of the crime. Persons convicted of sex offenses typically have the offense retained on their Idaho criminal records throughout their lifetime.

What are the Different Types of Sex Offenses?

Generally, sex crimes in Idaho are classified into the categories below:

Rape: this refers to any form of nonconsensual sexual intercourse. The Idaho statutes cover both men and women under its rape laws.

The Idaho statutes section 18-6101 & 18-6108 defines woman rape as the penetration of any opening in the female body under any of the circumstances below:

  • The perpetrator is no less than 18 years old, while the victim is not 16 years old
  • The woman is between 16 and 17 years old, while the perpetrator is no less than three years older
  • The victim is mentally incapacitated and, as a result, cannot consent legally
  • The victim was subdued through force or strong compulsion
  • The victim could not resist because of the pain inflicted by the offender or the threat of it.
  • This victim was incapable of resistance due to any anesthetic, narcotic or intoxicating substance
  • The victim was unconscious of the occurrence
  • The woman submits because the perpetrator is the husband
  • The victim submits because the husband threatened to inflict bodily harm or reveal a secret

Male rape is when the offender’s sexual organ penetrates either the anal or oral opening in another man’s body for sexual abuse, gratification, or arousal under any of the following circumstances:

  • The perpetrator is no less than 18 years old, while the victim is not 16 years old.
  • The woman is between 16 and 17 years old, while the perpetrator is no less than three years older.
  • The victim is mentally incapacitated and, as a result, cannot consent legally.
  • The victim was subdued through force or strong compulsion.
  • The victim could not resist because of the pain inflicted by the offender or the threat of it.
  • This victim was incapable of resistance due to any anesthetic, narcotic, or intoxicating substance.
  • The victim was not conscious of the manner of offense. This is also termed as the accused penalties.

This offense is punishable by one year (minimum) imprisonment. The court can also extend the sentence to life imprisonment, depending on the crime’s gravity and outcome.

Lewd & Lascivious Conduct: This refers to any conduct intended to arouse or gratify an offender’s sexual desires. Under § 18-1508, engaging in this act upon or with any body part of sixteen years old could result in a life imprisonment sentence (maximum). Whether it occurred between parties of the opposite or same-sex is irrelevant.

Sexual Exploitation of a Child: This can be defined as the willful possession or accessing of any sexual material through different mediums, including the web, with the intent to exploit a minor. Exploiting a child to engage or, in any way, be a part of any explicit sexually exploitative material falls under this crime regardless of whether a pecuniary transaction took place. Pursuant to § 18-1507, sexually exploiting a minor (when the offender only accesses or possesses an exploitative material) is a felony and, therefore, punishable by ten year jail time (maximum). At times the punishment can be a fine of $10,000 (maximum) or even both. However, this crime (when the offender uses the material to compel or forcefully exploit a minor) is a felony punishable by a 30 year jail time (maximum) or a fine no less than $50,000. At other times the offender could suffer both punishments.

Sexual abuse of a minor: This occurs when an individual that is more than 18 years old assaults a minor to gratify or satisfy sexual desires. This also occurs when an offender solicits a child that is less than 16 years of age to engage in any sexual conduct. Under this crime, a person creates an electronic or photographic recording of a minor engaging in any sexual act or Induces/permits the child to witness any sexual act. Based on § 18-1506 of the Idaho laws and punishment is a maximum of 25 years of jail time.

  • The location or assumed location of the record or person involved. This includes information such as the city, county, or state that person resides in or was accused in. 

Third-party sites are independent from government sources, and are not sponsored by these government agencies. Because of this, record availability on third-party sites may vary.
