COLUMBUS–State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) gave testimony in the House Criminal Justice Committee on Sub. House Bill 68. The bill, formerly House Bill 439 in the 131st General Assembly, would make it a crime to produce or pander sexually explicit material involving impaired persons. If passed, the bill would raise such a crime to the same status as that involving a minor.


“Currently, the State of Ohio is unable to protect some of our most vulnerable citizens when they are taken advantage of in the production of sexually explicit material. Often because of their age, impaired persons are unable to be defended to the degree they deserve,” said Rep. Anielski. “With this bill, a crime involving the production or pandering of sexually explicit material involving an impaired person would be raised to the same level as if the crime were committed against a minor. In passing the bill, the state legislature would be giving impaired people across the state important and considerable legal protections, regardless of their age.”


The bill stemmed from a case in Cuyahoga County in which the victims of voyeurism could not be properly protected due to age limitations with the language and definition of minor in the Ohio Revised Code. Sub. House Bill 68 will remove that limit and allow those innocent victims to be properly protected.
