Um, You Mean It is Not Presently a Crime to Have Sex With the Dead in Illinois?

 

File this one under, how is this not already a crime …

Illinois state Representative Dan Beiser (D-Alton) is sponsoring a bill to make unauthorized movement of a corpse a felony, House bill 5122. However, the bill is also making something else illegal as well, something that many would have assumed was already a crime. The bill will also make it illegal to have sex with a corpse.

It also would criminalize something that even Madison County Coroner Steve Nonn thought was already illegal — having sex with the dead.

Beiser said he introduced the legislation at the request of Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons and other law enforcement officials. Gibbons called the relocation of overdose victims an “impediment to investigation” in several cases.

Prohibiting sex with a dead body corrects an obvious omission in the law, Beiser said.

According to reports, if the measure passes, sex with a corpse would be a Class 2 felony, with punishment ranging from probation to seven years in prison. Unauthorized removal of a corpse would be a Class 4 felony, with a penalty ranging from probation to three years. Um, if it passes? Who would actually not vote in the affirmative for this bill?
