Elements of a Child Pornography Crime
There are three elements to a child pornography crime that, if present, may lead the person accused to be convicted of a third degree felony.
- Defendant knowingly possessed material featuring a child compromised
- The media in possession illustrates sexual conduct of a child younger than 18 years old
- Defendant knew the media in possession contained sexual conduct of a child
There are circumstances such as the child in question appears to be of age or the media being only a software file where an expert witness testimony would be required. Generally, possession of child pornography has a maximum sentence of five years, but there are no minimum mandatory sentences. This offense does grant the accused a pretrial release.
