FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE  


NEWS RELEASE # 018


FROM: CLERK OF SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA



The Opinion handed down on the 13th day of February, 2004, is as follows:



BY KIMBALL, J.:



2003-KA-1760 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. CRISTHIAN INTERIANO (Parish of Jefferson)

(Indecent Behavior With Juveniles)

For the foregoing reasons, we find that the lower court erred in considering attenuated hypothetical applications of La. R.S. 14:81(A) in ruling the statute unconstitutional and we find a narrowing construction of the statute provides adequate notice to a person of ordinary intelligence and understanding of what conduct is proscribed and an adequate evidentiary standard for jurors to determine guilt or innocence. Accordingly, we reverse the district court's finding that La. R.S. 14:81(A) is unconstitutional and remand for further proceedings.

DISTRICT COURT JUDGMENT REVERSED; CASE REMANDED.

 

CALOGERO, C.J., dissents and assigns reasons.

KNOLL, J., concurs in the result with reasons.
