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.

The production of child pornography is punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $2,000. The crime escalates to a felony, however, if the offender produces the images, film, or other product for commercial purposes. This crime is punishable by three, six or eight years in prison as determined by a judge. Also, any second or subsequent conviction will result in increased penalties. It is possible to be falsely convicted for such a crime, so get legal assistance immediately if you are facing charges.
