Sexual penetration by psychotherapist--Felony.
Any psychotherapist who
knowingly engages in an act of sexual penetration, as defined in § 22-22-2, with a person who is not
his or her spouse and who is a patient who is emotionally dependent on the psychotherapist at the
time that the act of sexual penetration is committed, commits a Class 4 felony. Consent by the patient
is not a defense.
