Child Pornography Penalties

Child pornography is defined as any sort of visual depictions of sexual conduct involving a minor (under the age of 18). Possession of child pornography is considered a third degree felony, which is punishable by a prison sentence between two and ten years and a fine of up to $10,000. However, if an individual possesses child pornography and demonstrates the intent to distribute or promote it, the charge is increased to a second degree felony, which is punishable by a prison sentence between two and 20 years and a fine of up to $10,000.

Knowingly producing, directing or promoting a performance which entails sexual conduct by a child under 18, this crime is considered a third degree felony. However, if the child is younger than 14, the charge is increased to a second degree felony.

For the crime of employing a child younger than 18 for sexual performance or conduct, it is considered a second degree felony.
