Child Pornography Definition & Penalties in California

Under Cal. Pen. Code § 311.3, a person is guilty of sexual exploitation of a child (a.k.a. child pornography) if he or she knowingly develops, duplicates, prints, or exchanges anything including, but not limited to, any film, photograph, video, DVD, CD-ROM, or computer-generated image that depicts a person under the age of 18 engaged in an act of sexual conduct. The trafficking, sale or possession of child pornography is also outlawed under Cal. Pen. Code § 311.2. Sex crimes are often handled by and punishable under state law; however, sex crimes committed against minors are considered to be much more serious and are often handled under federal law. One of the worst of these offenses is child pornography.
