    Sexual Communication With A Child | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors

    Section 67 of the Serious Crime Act 2015, (‘the Act’), which came into force on 3rd April 2017, arises from the campaign launched in 2014 by the National Society for The Protection of Cruelty to Children in which it was suggested that a new offence was required to protect children from those who communicate sexually with them.

    Clearly, the Act is designed to prevent adults talking sexually to children via chatrooms or to send explicit messages via text, or other social media.

    The Act | Kangs Sexual Offences Team

    • The Act provides that it is a criminal offence for a person aged over 18, for the purpose of obtaining sexual gratification, to intentionally communicate, for example by social media, with a child under 16 years, or where it is not reasonably believed the child is over that age, if the communication is sexual or is intended to encourage the child to make a communication that it sexual.
    • A communication is regarded as being sexual, for the purposes of this section of the Act, if any part of it relates to sexual activity or a reasonable person would consider any part of the communication to be sexual.

    Defence | Kangs Advisory Solicitors

    A defence may be available to an accused who can show that it was reasonably believed that the person with whom he/she was communicating was over 16.

    Sentence Upon Conviction | Kangs Sexual Offences Defence Team

    The offence is an ‘either way’ offence i.e. triable in either the Magistrates’ Court or a Crown Court and carries a maximum of 2 years imprisonment.
