Contributing to the delinquency of a minor is a class 4 felony offense. A person commits the act of contributing to the delinquency of a minor when they induce, aid, or encourage a minor to violate any federal or state law, municipal ordinance, or court order. It is not a defense that the adult did not know the other party was underage, or that the minor lied about being underage.
