Any visual images or pictures that show a child unclothed, or engaged in any sort of sexual activity qualify as Child Pornography. Because children are the victims of this type of sex crime, law enforcement, the U.S. Attorney and the District Attorney may vigorously pursue the perpetrators and prosecute them aggressively. Laws have recently been expanded to widen the scope of what is considered pornographic as well, to include different characterizations of child pornography, including cartoon images.
In the effort to eradicate this type of crime, law enforcement has stepped up its efforts. The authorities may locate and raid a company that produces Child Pornography. They could also obtain the information from the company about who has purchased these materials, obtain a search warrant and arrest their clients as well.
