Sexual Exploitation of a Minor/Child Pornography

In Arizona, possessing child pornography is covered under ARS § 13-3553, sexual exploitation of a minor. Under § 13-3553, a person commits sexual exploitation by knowingly:

  • Recording, filming, photographing, developing, or duplicating any type of visual depiction of a minor engaging in sexual poses or sexual conduct.
  • Distributing, transporting, exhibiting, receiving, selling, purchasing, possessing, exchanging, or electronically transmitting any visual depiction of a minor engaged in sexual poses or sexual conduct.

How long could I go to prison for child pornography?

Sexual exploitation of a minor is a Class 2 felony offense if the minor is under the age of 15, punishable pursuant to Section 13-705. If you have been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor (child pornography) in Arizona, you face 10 to 24 years imprisonment per count under Section 13-705.

Drawing the Line Between Viewing Child Pornography and Danger to Society

Somewhere along the line, courts began interpreting defendants charged with viewing child pornography as a danger to society. The nature of the offense can create an unfair bias against defendants in child pornography possession cases. As one judge put it, the interests of defendants in these cases are “so foreign that our citizens want them permanently removed from society,” a punishment that clearly does not fit the alleged crime.

Juries and judges might also make the incorrect assumption that everyone who views child pornography will also eventually, or at least has the desire to, carry out the act and harm a child. This is simply not the case. A line must be drawn between viewing child pornography and being a danger to society.
