Child Pornography Investigations
Because child pornography is considered such a serious offense, state and federal law enforcement agencies work tirelessly to investigate possible offenders. Today, most child pornography investigations involve the internet. As such, computer forensic teams and other specialized task forces may work together to detect internet crimes that involve child pornography.
Examples of child porn crimes and related issues law enforcement focus on include:
- Possession of child pornography
- Production or Distribution of child pornography
- Online Peer-to-Peer file sharing
- Sexual exploitation of children
- Online chat rooms
Child Pornography Charges & Penalties
According to Georgia Code § 16-12-100, it is illegal to produce, distribute, or possess any depiction of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, or simulated sexual conduct. Depictions may include any type of imagery, including photos, online files, or videos, among others.
Penalties for child pornography can vary depending on the circumstances involved and a defendant's criminal history, but they are almost always severe. Under Georgia Law, penalties for child pornography can include up to $100,000 in fines and imprisonment between 5 and 20 years. Having a sex crime conviction on one's record and having to register as a sex offender can also create a lifetime of restrictions.
