HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — Virginia made national headlines in 2008 when state lawmakers made it illegal for an adult to use his or her tongue while kissing a child. The so-called “French Kiss” law was signed by then Virginia Governor Tim Kaine.

Fast forward six years and it appears someone has been arrested — for the first time — for breaking that law.

Police arrested Erick Alezndro Hernandez Tellez, 21, of Henrico for sexual assaulting a 12-year-old “female acquaintance,” police said. Specifically Tellez was charged with violating Virginia Code 18.2-370.6, which states:

Any person 18 years of age or older who, with lascivious intent, kisses a child under the age of 13 on the mouth while knowingly and intentionally penetrating the mouth of such child with his tongue is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Del. Riley Ingram (R – Chesterfield, Henrico, Prince George and Hopewell) sponsored the 2008 bill. He said he believed this was the first time anyone had been arrested for breaking the law he helped pass.

“The one about French kissing?” Del. Ingram replied when asked about it over the phone. “I don’t know of anyone whose been arrested for that.”

Requests were made with both the state and Henrico Police to confirm Del. Riley’s belief.

Del. Riley said he introduced the bill on behalf of a Henrico mother who was upset when a man French kissed her young daughter in a “daycare setting” and felt that person’s punishment was not appropriate for the situation, he recalled.

  • angel2

    i hope they’ll also charge him with the same violations Morrisey was charged with. And, she should be punished by her parents (if they care).

    There is no reason to have to share the planet with this NABDA (democrat) protected s**t. Tolerance be damned as well as those promoting it. There is no reason to expose or victimize American children to this s**t either. Fair trial before fair hanging. Do it at the border for training purposes.

  • Timmy McFadden

    So, to recap, Mom let her 12 year old run around all hours of the night and day with this guy and then gets upset when the daughter throws herself at a 21 year old guy. Is that how it works?

  • TJ

    It’s crazy how just because the guy is Hispanic he is assumed to be an illegal immigrant. For all we know he could have been born here and his parents as well, making him an American citizens. His actions were indeed wrong but why judge and stereotype him based on his name and appearance? Don’t forget, American Indians were here before any of us. ..

  • kevin

    Shawn you are obviously A idiot and have no clue about Obama’s Immigration laws. If a illegal Immigrant commits a crime he will be deported.

    What kind of adult french kisses a kid? A sick one. Timmay’s idiotic woman-hating based theories aside this so-called man was supposed to be an adult here – and IF (and I do mean IF) Timmay’s theory of this 12 year old “throwing herself” at him has any basis in reality he should have done the right thing and stopped it. I suspect that he’s the instigator in this. Either way he broke the law and deserved to be punished for it.

      Athynz, you are a dried up, post-menopausal hag. How was he supposed to know she was 12? Girls look a lot older these days. Plus, girls are women in training, meaning, they are learning how to manipulate the system to get the best possible outcome for themselves. The easiest way to do that is to claim to be a victim. And you are judging. I guess you are probably unemployed and living off of alimony. I’m not surprised.

      • athynz

        Timmay you are sadly and pathetically mistaken about a great many things.

        “TIMMY MCFADDEN
        Athynz, you are a dried up, post-menopausal hag.”

        LOL, that’s funny! I’m a man you bitter, bitter man – so no post menopausal issues for me and men aren’t called generally called “hags”. Nor am I old enough to be considered “dried up”.

        “How was he supposed to know she was 12?”

        The same way everyone else knows – she probably looks and acts 12. But here’s the thing – first you ASSume that he knows the family, knows the mother, and presumably he’d know how old she is. Remember THIS gem Timmay?

        “TIMMY MCFADDEN
        So, to recap, Mom let her 12 year old run around all hours of the night and day with this guy and then gets upset when the daughter throws herself at a 21 year old guy. ”

        Now you ask how he was supposed to know how old she is? Dude stick to one story or the other.

        “Girls look a lot older these days. Plus, girls are women in training, meaning, they are learning how to manipulate the system to get the best possible outcome for themselves.”

        So do those bad apples that are abusing the social assistance systems – men and women. Not all women are like that – sure there are some manipulate gold diggers out there but you make blanket statements about all women probably due to one seeing the real Timmay. The ONLY thing you’ve said that I actually agree with is that girls look older these days. But most 12 year olds look and act 12.

        “The easiest way to do that is to claim to be a victim.”

        You speak from personal experience there Timmay?

        “And you are judging.”

        You make idiotic unsubstantiated statements and I’m calling you out on them. So yeah there is some judging involved.

        “I guess you are probably unemployed and living off of alimony. I’m not surprised.”

        You guess wrong Timmay – as usual. I have a full time job, I am a married man and therefore do not get alimony. Don’t you get tired of being wrong?

      • Timmy McFadden

        Athynz, you are a wretched old lesbian with an overblown sense of self-entitlement. The article is about a girl who tricked a man into believing she was older than she actually is and she then claimed victim status so that everyone would pay attention to her. Try to stay focused on the content of the article, ok?

      • athynz

        Timmay. Timmay, Timmay… your posts both amuse me and make me concerned for your mental health.

        “TIMMY MCFADDEN
        Athynz, you are a wretched old lesbian with an overblown sense of self-entitlement.”

        Actually old boy it’s just my feminine side that is a lesbian and quite frankly the only things I’m “entitled to” is life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – and everything else that is outlined in the Constitution of The United States of America. So what’s the matter with being a lesbian? Oh, wait – THAT’S what it was! Your wife didn’t leave you for another man she left you for a woman! Ouch! Well Timmay life’s hard so take your own advice and just get over it! Enough with the whining about women.

        “The article is about a girl who tricked a man into believing she was older than she actually is and she then claimed victim status so that everyone would pay attention to her. Try to stay focused on the content of the article, ok?”

        The article is about an adult male who french kissed a little girl – and yes at 12 years old she is still a little girl. I love how you dance around my question concerning your POV – did the guy in fact know the family or not? You seem to know it all Timmay so it should be a simple question to answer. And can you do so without your ridiculous bias against women?

  • Borlando

    Well, at least women don’t have to worry about this law… ‘…of such child with “his” tongue is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor’.

  • Steel Mill

    Where were the parents?
    This is a stupid law. Oh well, I guess the Commonwealth has lots of $ to stick into the Corrections Department

  • wiseman

    Timmy no not all women lie. Just because your mom lie to her husband and told him that you was his child. When he saw how dumb you was at the age of 4 he requested a dna test. Holy cow your mom lie.
