Senate OKs Bill Cracking Down on Teacher-Student Sex Crimes

Posted: Updated:
Nevada senators have passed a bill that would toughen penalties against teachers and other school workers who have sexual relationships with students.

Senators unanimously approved Senate Bill 192 on Friday. It now heads to the Assembly.

The measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Becky Harris would require a school worker to register as a sex offender for life if they were convicted of a sexual crime involving a student. 

It would also criminalize sexual conduct between school employees or volunteers and college students who are as old as 18 if the student hasn't already completed high school.

The provision aims to protect young college students who are enrolled in high school and college classes concurrently.  (AP)
