What Is Vicarious Sexual Gratification?

According to Indian Code § 35-42-4-5, adults who knowingly or intentionally instruct, direct, aid, include or, cause a child under the age of sixteen to fondle themselves or another minor with intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desires of a child or the adult can be charged with vicarious sexual gratification.

Although this offense is a Level 5 felony, it can be a Level 4 felony if a child involved in the incident is under the age of fourteen. It can also be a Level 3 felony if the accused threatened to use deadly force, had a deadly weapon, or gave the victim a drug or controlled substance without their knowledge.

Because people can easily see this type of criminal record, convicted sex offenders often struggle to find gainful employment and housing. You will also have to deal with expensive fines, probation, and years in prison if you are convicted of vicarious sexual gratification with a minor.
