  2. Defendant touches him/her in a lewd and lascivious manner on their breasts, genitals, genital area, or buttocks, or the clothing covering them.

NOTE:

2. A lewd and lascivious molestation charge can be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office where the victim commits the alleged molestation when enticed to do so by the Defendant.
