             (c)      Sexual contact under § 22-22-7 if the victim was between the ages of thirteen and sixteen and the petitioner was at least three years older than the victim, but only if the petitioner was twenty-one years of age or younger at the time the offense was committed; or
             (d)      An out-of-state, federal or court martial offense that is comparable to the elements of the crimes listed in (a), (b), or (c);
