New, June 13, 2008

Note: Public Acts, Spec. Sess., June, 2007, 07-4, § 97, which created this offense, became effective October 1, 2007.

The defendant is charged [in count __] with misrepresentation of age to entice a minor. The statute defining this offense reads in pertinent part as follows:

a person is guilty of misrepresentation of age to entice a minor when such person, in the course of and in furtherance of the commission of enticing a minor, intentionally misrepresents such person's age.

For you to find the defendant guilty of this charge, the state must prove the following elements beyond a reasonable doubt:

Element 1 - Committed enticing a minor
The first element is that the defendant committed enticing a minor. <Insert the elements from Enticing a Minor, Instruction 7.6-1.>

Element 2 - Misrepresented age
The second element is that, in the course of and in furtherance of that offense, the defendant intentionally misrepresented (his/her) age. A person acts "intentionally" with respect to a result when (his/her) conscious objective is to cause such result. <See Intent: Specific, Instruction 2.3-1.>

Conclusion

In summary, the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that <insert the concluding summary from the instruction for enticing a minor>, and that the defendant intentionally misrepresented (his/her) age.

If you unanimously find that the state has proved beyond a reasonable doubt each of the elements of the crime of misrepresentation of age to entice a child, then you shall find the defendant guilty. On the other hand, if you unanimously find that the state has failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt any of the elements, you shall then find the defendant not guilty.
