Corruption of minors

Criminal lawyer in Milan for juvenile victims of corruption

A Corruption of Minors charge is often issued when an adult is suspected of committing an act that corrupted or tends to corrupt the morals of a person less than 16 years of age.


Attorney-at-law Federica Liparoti, an English-speaking Italian criminal defense lawyer admitted to the Milan Bar, owner of the law firm of the same name in Milan (Italy) and a PhD in Criminal Law, assists juvenile victims of corruption free of charge (procedure named in Italy 'gratuito patrocinio' or 'patrocinio a spese dello Stato', a pro bono-like work, in which the lawyer's fee is paid by the Italian State) at all stages of the proceedings - regardless of income - pursuant to Article 76 paragraph IV of Presidential Decree 115/2002.

Below is the text of the Italian criminal code which regulates this crime, followed by its translation.

Original Text:

Chiunque, fuori dei casi preveduti dagli articoli 519, 520 e 521, commette atti di libidine su persona o in presenza di persona minore degli anni sedici, è punito con la reclusione da sei mesi a tre anni.
