What Is Child Pornography?
Child pornography in California is any images, videos, data, and computer files that depict anyone under the age of eighteen engaged in a sexual act at the time of the production. It makes no difference if the sexual act is real or simulated.
The two exceptions to this rule are:
- Minors who are legally emancipated; and
- Consensual acts between married individuals.
In California, it is illegal to do any of the following:
- Knowingly send, transport, produce, possess or duplicate any child pornography, with the intent to distribute it;
- Knowingly develop, duplicate, print, or exchange any child pornography;
- Knowingly hire, employ, use, persuade, or coerce a minor to participate in the production of pornography;
- Knowingly advertise obscene child porn for sale or distribution; and
- Knowingly possess or control any child pornography that was produced using a person under eighteen.
Punishment for Child Pornography in California
Child pornography may be a felony or a misdemeanor in California. Misdemeanor child pornography carries a sentence of up to one year in country jail and a fine of up to $2,000. Felony child pornography may result in up to eight years in prison and a fine as high as $100,000.
Most child pornography convictions also carry mandatory registration as a sex offender.
Anyone may access California’s registry of convicted sex offenders. This can impair the ability to secure stable work and quality housing. There are certain jobs and housing opportunities unavailable to registered sex offenders in California.
