PUBLISHED November 3, 1998

In a charge of gross indecency with a child, the question as to whether the defendant could be said to have been acting "with or towards a child" may be answered as follows: Whether the totality of the circumstances fairly could be said to have amounted to an invitation to a child to participate in an indecent act with the adult.
