    Such a person is guilty of "lewd acts against children, under the age of 14, according to, penal code 288 PC"

    Explanation:

    The penal code 288 PC is a California law that defines a "lewd act" as; someone sexually touching a child or making the child touch him/herself, or someone else.

    Penal code 288 PC states that;

    "any person who willfully and lewdly commits any lewd or lascivious act, upon or with the body, or any part or member thereof, of a child who is under the age of 14 years, with the intent of arousing, appealing to, or gratifying the lust, passions, or sexual desires of that person or the child, is guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for three, six, or eight years."

    Therefore commiting such an act on a 13-year old child falls under this statute.
