        Amends the Criminal Code of  1961.   Changes  references  in  the

   at  which  a  person  may be convicted of contributing to the criminal      
   delinquency of a juvenile from 21 years and upwards to  17  years  and      
   upwards. Amends the Wrongs to Children Act.  Provides that the offense      
   of  permitting  sexual  abuse  of  a  child does not apply to a person      
   responsible for the child's welfare who, having reason to believe that      
   sexual abuse has occurred, makes timely and reasonable efforts to stop      
   the sexual abuse in conformance with the Abused  and  Neglected  Child      
   Reporting Act or by reporting the sexual abuse, or causing a report to      
   be  made,  to  medical  or  law  enforcement authorities.  Changes the      
   penalties for the offense.  Effective immediately.                          
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)
