  • Laws vary, depending on charges against you and the state. It is a crime in Indiana, but in California although there are no laws, anything you do that would enable you to get your hands on a corpse is illegal such as breaking into a morgue or grave. So it would depend on how many charges were against you and the state you were in.
  • Believe it or not, many states do not have specific laws on the books that punish sexual contact with human remains. California does have a statute, though - a Bill signed by Governor Schwarzenneger now prohibits sex with a corpse. It's covered in Health & Safety Code section 7052. The text reads: 7052. (a) Every person who willfully mutilates, disinters, removes from the place of interment, or commits an act of sexual penetration on, or has sexual contact with, any remains known to be human, without authority of law, is guilty of a felony. This section does not apply to any person who, under authority of law, removes the remains for reinterment, or performs a cremation. (b) For purposes of this section, the following definitions apply: (1) "Sexual penetration" means the unlawful penetration of the vagina or anus, however slight, by any part of a person's body or other object, or any act of sexual contact between the sex organs of a person and the mouth or anus of a dead body, or any oral copulation of a dead human body for the purpose of sexual arousal, gratification, or abuse. (2) "Sexual contact" means any willful touching by a person of an intimate part of a dead human body for the purpose of sexual arousal, gratification, or abuse. The punishment in California for any felony that does not otherwise specify a sentence, is up to three years in state prison.
  • In Canada, you could be charged criminally, under section 182(b) of the Criminal Code. The law reads, "Every one who improperly or indecently interferes with or offers any indignity to a dead human body or human remains, whether buried or not, is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years." An "indictable offence" refers to a class of offences that would be roughly the equivalent to what is referred to as a "felony" in the USA.
  • I'm not sure about New York State's corpse law, but as of now, its legal here, unless someone have infos about it.
