Is Other-Crimes Evidence Admissible to Show Intent of Inappropriate Sexual Touching ?

In People v. Wilson, 214 Ill. 2d 127, 824 N.E.2d 191, 291 Ill. Dec. 615 (2005), the court held that other-crimes evidence was admissible to show the defendant's intent in touching a young girl's breast. The court observed that aggravated criminal sexual abuse, as it was charged there, "is a specific-intent crime--the State must show defendant intentionally or knowingly touched the victim on the breast for purposes of sexual gratification" and that the defendant's intent was automatically at issue in such a case. Wilson, 214 Ill. 2d at 137.
