State v. Morris
In State v. Morris, 49 Conn. App. 409, 417-18, 716 A.2d 897, cert. denied, 247 Conn. 904, 720 A.2d 516 (1998), the Court stated:
"The element of 'sexual contact,' included within the offense of sexual assault in the fourth degree, is not necessarily equivalent to the touching of the private parts of a child in a 'sexual and indecent manner' . . . prohibited by the risk of injury to a child statute. The term 'sexual contact' is defined as 'any contact with the intimate parts of a person not married to the actor for the purpose of sexual gratification of the actor or for the purpose of degrading or humiliating such person . . . .' The mental state required for the offense of sexual assault in the fourth degree, therefore, is clearly different from that required for the offense of risk of injury to a child." Id., 419.
