F 18.65 n1 PC 653f Not Applicable To Crimes Added to PC 264.1, PC 288 or PC 289 After 1980.
PC 653f(c) [soliciting commission of certain crimes] was added by Stats. 1979, ch. 944 § 9, effective January 1, 1980. It incorporated those statutory provisions as they existed on January 1, 1980, and not as they were later amended. For example, when PC 653f(c) was enacted, the reference to “any violation of PC 288(c)” referred only to lewd acts on a child under 14. PC 288(c) was subsequently amended to include the crime of lewd acts on a child of 14 or 15 with a perpetrator at least 10 years older (Stats. 1988, ch. 1398, § 1.) Thus, PC 653f is not applicable to crimes added to those sections after January 1, 1980. [See Brief Bank # B-783 for additional briefing on this issue.]
