Basically, any visual imagery that depicts a child younger than 18 years old, without clothes or engaged in a sexual activity is deemed to be Child Pornography, also known as kiddie porn. Because this type of sex crime involves the victimization of children, law enforcement agencies have expanded the scope of their definition child pornography and it can now include cartoon imagery and other visual depictions of children. Both the U.S. Attorney and the Manhattan District Attorney may aggressively prosecute these crimes.
Because of the recent efforts to eradicate Child Pornography, law enforcement has taken extra measures to seek out child pornography producers and their customers. For example, Police could raid a company that creates Child Pornography and subsequently seize their client information. They could then obtain search warrants and go after the company’s customers as well.
