The initiative would have changed the sentence for gross sexual assault against a victim who was under 12 years of age to a period of imprisonment of 25 years. If the defendant had previously been convicted and sentenced for committing gross sexual assault, rape or gross sexual misconduct against a person who was under 12 years of age, the court would have had to impose a sentence of life imprisonment.
