Child Pornography is defined as imagery that depicts children in a sexual act or unclothed, or both. The child must be under the age of 18. This crime is deemed to be both a state and federal offense, and is treated aggressively by law enforcement, as well as the District Attorney and U.S. Attorney. In fact, the scope of what is considered Child Pornography has recently been broadened to include cartoon images and other characterizations.
With this type of crime, the child is the victim. Because of this, law enforcement agencies have increased their efforts like never before to end this type of activity. They will often raid a company or producer of pornographic material as well as the person(s) involved in the distribution of that material, and then may go after their customers through their credit card records.
