If the minor was under the age of 15, you would be charged with a class 2 felony. If they were at least 15 years old, you could be charged with a class 6 felony.

You would face class 2 felony charges if you were the victim’s:

  • Parent, stepparent or adoptive parent
  • Legal guardian or foster parent
  • Teacher, clergyman or priest

The penalties for sexual conduct with a minor as a class 6 felony include up to two years in prison, up to three years of supervised probation and $150,000 in fines plus surcharges.
