A New Jersey lawmaker has a plan that would make it a crime to lie in order to sleep with someone. As CBS2’s Jessica Schneider reported, Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-Mount Laurel) calls it "rape by fraud."
(...) Short supports the bill. She claims she was deceived for years by her now ex-husband. "He lied about his marital status, he lied about his education. He said he had a bachelor’s in accounting from NYU and was, in fact, a high school dropout," Short said.
At least five states already make it a crime to have sex by fraud, but some make it a lesser offense than rape.
If the bill becomes law, major cases of lying and deception for sex could result in 10 to 20 years in prison.
