It is a third degree crime to lure or entice a child into a motor vehicle, structure or isolated area with a purpose to commit a criminal offense with or against the child.
Child means a person less than 18 years old.
This offense encompasses structures - building, room, ship, vessel or airplane - isolated areas, as well as motor vehicles.
This offense applies to the attempt and not the completed act.
State must prove that defendant had a purpose to commit a criminal offense with or against the child.
A defendant convicted of a second or subsequent - third or fourth - luring of child offense, must be sentenced to a term of imprisonment.
The term of imprisonment must include a mandatory minimum term of one third to one half of the sentence imposed, or two years whichever is greater, during which time defendant is not eligible for parole.
