Summary/Abstract: CRIMINAL LAW // Chapter two, section eight, “Fornication” of The Criminal Code (1968) settles issues, concerning sexual inviolability. It became ever more urgent, over the past few years, to modernize the regulations, concerning acts done by minors and juveniles. Amendments were also made to define new types of crimes, likewise, criminal repression was strengthened. But in spite of the fact that these steps came up to public expectations, they also led legal practitioners to serious difficulties and, even worse, failed to achieve the necessary effect. The article refers to certain inconsistencies in legal practice concerning fornication and rape, especially in view of the specific provisions against homosexual activities with kids or the commitment of crimes from the “Fornication” and “Trafficking sections”. The article also pays attention to the insufficient treatment of the new crimes, defined in art. 154a, art.155a, pr.1 and 2, art.155b and art.158a of the Criminal Code, as well as to pornography with respect to the same group of people.
