New Jersey Lawmaker Plans to Introduce Bill Banning Incest

On Wednesday, New Jersey Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini announced her plans to introduce a bill that would ban adults from marrying or “committing an act of sexual penetration” with a blood relative. New Jersey does not currently have a law on the books banning inter-family relations, as long as both family members are over 18. Anyone who breaks the proposed law would face up to five years in jail and a $15,000 fine. Hmmm, can we take credit for this one?
