Child Pornography Possession and Distribution Laws in Kalamazoo
Child pornography is referred to as child sexually abusive material throughout state law, and anyone who accesses, possesses, makes, distributes, or otherwise promotes child sexually abusive material can face criminal conviction. Even though the age of consent is 16, anything that depicts or appears to depict a person under the age of 18 is considered illegal child pornography. Depict or appear to depict, by law, means that any average individual would find that the depiction appeals to those interested in child pornography, and that the depiction lacks artistic, literary, political or scientific value.
Possession can include physical possession, digital possession, storage on an external drive or in an email inbox, and similar means of possessing , while distribution can mean handing physical materials over, sending a text or forwarding an email, and other methods of passing along unlawful materials.
