Notes of Decisions

"Permits" means to allow or make possible. State v. Porter, 241 Or App 26, 249 P3d 139 (2011), Sup Ct review denied

Person who participates in con­duct may be observer of display of sexually ex­plic­it con­duct between coparticipant and child. State v. Tyson, 243 Or App 94, 259 P3d 64 (2011), Sup Ct review denied

Defendant, who gave stickers and gum to child to persuade or influence child to be photographed, induced child under this sec­tion. State v. Smith, 261 Or App 665, 322 P3d 1129 (2014), Sup Ct review denied

Evidence of text-message conversa­tion between defendant and child, together with evidence that defendant developed romantic rela­tionship with child, and in context of that rela­tionship asked child to take and send to him sexually ex­plic­it photograph is sufficient to prove that defendant "permitted" child to participate or engage in sexually ex­plic­it con­duct. State v. Hunt, 270 Or App 206, 346 P3d 1285 (2015)
