Senate to consider changing school-worker sex laws

The Michigan Senate is expected to vote on legislation aimed at expanding prohibitions against sex between school employees and students.

The package of bills coming up Thursday would make it a crime for school employees such as administrators and teachers to have sex with students under the age of 20. Sex is currently illegal in such cases when the student is under the age of 18.

The legislation is intended to address high school students who turn 18 before they graduate. Sponsors of the legislation say it is still inappropriate for a school employee to have sex with students even if they have reached the age of 18.

Similar bills were introduced last session but stalled in the House.
