   the  Unified  Code  of  Corrections, and the Sex Offender Registration      
   Act. Creates the offense of illegal solicitation of a child.  Provides      
   that  a  person commits the offense of illegal solicitation of a child      
   when he or she intentionally solicits, lures, or attempts  to  solicit      
   or  lure  a  child  under  18 years of age to any location without the      
   consent of the parent or lawful custodian of the child for other  than      
   a  lawful  purpose  or intentionally contacts or communicates with, or      
   attempts to contact or communicate with a child, for  the  purpose  of      
   engaging  in an unlawful act with the child. Provides that a violation      
   is a Class 4 felony for a first offense and a Class  3  felony  for  a      
   second  or  subsequent  offense.  Changes  the elements of the offense

   child  under 18 years of age to pose for a photograph, videotape, or a      
   digital image in any posture or setting that  could  be  construed  as      
   child  erotica. Defines "child erotica" as a photograph, videotape, or      
   a digital image in  which  the  focus  or  the  concentration  of  the      
   photograph,  videotape,  or  digital  image  is the lewd or lascivious      
   depiction or exhibition of the child's clothed or unclothed  genitals,

   to, send or cause to be sent to, or offers to distribute or  send  any      
   harmful  material  to  a  child, is guilty of a Class 4 felony (rather      
   than a Class A misdemeanor).  Prohibits  a  child  sex  offender  from      
   conducting  or  operating  any  type  of  business  in which he or she      
   photographs, videotapes, or takes a digital image of a child or  sells      
   or  offers for sale those photographs or images or instructs others to      
   take those photographs or images; or entices, arranges, or  transports      
   a  child  to  pose  for  such  photographs  or images. Provides that a

        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 5.                                                
        Removes a provision concerning solicitation or luring of a  child      
   to  a location without the consent of the parent or custodian as being      
   prima facie evidence of other than a lawful purpose.  Provides that  a      
   child  sex  offender may not entice, transport, or arrange for a child      
   to pose for  "child  erotica"  (instead  of  pose  for  a  photograph,      
   videotape, or digital image).
