What Are California’s Child Pornography Laws?

California has several laws that prohibit specific conduct related to child pornography.

It is illegal for a person to knowingly do any of the following with matter depicting a person under 18 years of age engaged in sexual conduct:

  • Possess or control
  • Send or distribute
  • Develop, duplicate, print, or exchange
  • Advertise

It is also unlawful for a person to hire or employ a minor for the purpose of having them perform sexual acts.

According to California Penal Code 311.4(d) PC, sexual conduct includes the following:

  • Sexual intercourse
  • Oral copulation
  • Anal intercourse
  • Anal oral copulation
  • Masturbation
  • Bestiality
  • Sexual sadism
  • Sexual masochism
  • Penetrating the vagina or anus with an object in a sexual way
  • Exposing the rectal area or genitals

When it comes to child pornography, specific actions are prohibited whether the material depicted a child actually involved in the sexual conduct or simulated it.

What Are the Penalties for a Child Pornography Conviction?

Child pornography charges are serious, and the state harshly prosecutes and penalizes these crimes.

Depending on the circumstances, these offenses can be pursued as either misdemeanors or felonies, and the specific punishments depend on the facts of the case. For instance, a person found guilty of possessing child pornography can be sentenced to up to 1 year in jail and/or fined up to $2,500. However, if that individual was previously found guilty of a child pornography offense or other sex crime, they could be looking at imprisonment for 2, 4, or 6 years.
