A: To find out if the definition of third-degree sexual abuse in Iowa has changed since 2006, you will need to review the Iowa Code and any amendments made to it over the years.

Third-degree sexual abuse generally involves sexual conduct under certain circumstances, such as when the victim is mentally incapacitated or physically helpless. However, legal definitions can be updated or clarified by new laws or court rulings.

You should consult the most recent version of the Iowa Code, specifically Section 709.4, to see any amendments. It might also be helpful to check with a legal professional or the Iowa Legislature’s website for detailed information on any changes made since 2006.
