Child Pornography Laws & Penalties
To be convicted of a child pornography crime in California, the prosecution
needs to prove that you knowingly committed the act and, upon the commission
of the act, you knew that the material showed an individual under 18 years
old participating or simulating sexual conduct. Most child pornography
offenses are considered felonies and require the guilty party to register
as a sex offender.
Possession means knowingly possessing or controlling any child pornography
which was produced using a person under 18 years of age. The punishment
for this offense is a maximum county jail sentence of one year and a fine
On the other hand, a person convicted of transporting child pornography
into the state or distributing child pornography to others may be sentenced
to one year in county jail and a fine of $1,000. Depending on the circumstances
of the case, however, the court may decide to sentence the defendant to
up to three years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
