State v. Green Where S.C. Code Ann. § 16-15-342 includes the term “knowingly,” it affects only those individuals who intentionally target minors for the purpose of engaging or participating in sexual activity or a violent crime. The statute does not criminalize protected speech and is narrowly tailored to achieve a compelling state interest. The statute is not unconstitutionally overbroad as any alleged overbreadth is unsubstantial when considered in relation to its plainly legitimate sweep.
