Child Pornography Laws & Penalties

Child pornography is defined as photographs, videos, and other viewable material which depicts the sexual exploitation of a minor child. There are several types of child pornography offenses in Georgia.

These specific crimes include:

  • Sexting
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Distribution or production of child pornography
  • Peer-to-peer sharing over the internet
  • Solicitation through online chatrooms and messaging services

The penalties upon conviction depend on the circumstances of the case, the defendant’s criminal history, and other factors. However, they are always harsh in nature.

According to state law, child pornography penalties include imprisonment between five and 20 years, a maximum $100,000 fine, and registration as a sex offender potentially for your entire life. If you are registered as a sex offender, it can be difficult to get a job, apply for college, find housing, and take advantage of other opportunities in life.

Keep in mind, child pornography is also a federal offense. Since this sex crime often involves the internet, crossing state lines could mean that the federal government has jurisdiction over the case. A conviction in federal court can lead to more severe punishment.
