Wouldn't increasing the penalty for desecrating a corpse be more appropriate instead of calling it sexual abuse???

The handful of cases referred to in the link are just the ones where someone got caught.

Years ago, I worked for a PI firm that was handling a high profile case involving a California mortuary that was co-mingling cremains, stealing gold teeth, eyeballs, even artificial hip joints. Things came out of that investigation that the general public would be horrified to know, including one embalmer who regularly had sex with female corpses after the rest of the staff had gone home. The people in charge knew about it and looked the other way.

Laugh if you will or brush it off as unnecessary, but how would you feel if your 4 year old daughter was violated after death and there was NO law against it?

How would any you feel if this happened to your mother or grandmother?

I think the sexual abuse of a corpse is egregious enough to warrant its own penalty.

So sodomizing a dead 4 year old girl isn't serious enough to warrant its own separate punishment?

It is a corpse. However you mistreat it, there should be a penalty. Make it as harsh as you want.

I find the incident you site as disgusting as anything.

Oh, yes. It's a sad state of affairs when they have to do this to stop really disgusting stuff.

I guess the question becomes one of how you treat a corpse. Should rights and protections given to living persons be extended to corpses? Or should desecration of corpse laws be revised?

Why on earth would you want to revise laws against the desecration of corpses?

I thought that this was what the law Schwarzenegger signed DID...impose harsher violations for the egregious abuse of corpses (that is, sexual abuse).

Well, I thought the arguments above were calling for a separate crime for sexual abuse, rather than just desecration of a corpse.

Or, in principle, how do you rank types of desecration of corpses?

Or, perhaps, we have beaten this subject too much.

Hm.......sexual abuse? I guess the politicians want to make sure California has a new sexual abuse law? Perhaps the incident mentioned was the catalyst for the law? I can't imagine us having a law like that here.

It seems that a lot of our laws are incident -based, not principle based
