The Penalties for Child Pornography Crimes in Florida
State statutes and federal laws make it a crime for you to possess any photographs, images, videos, motion pictures or digital media that depict a minor (under the age of 18) engaging in sexual acts or posing in a sexually provocative manner. If charged with this crime, you could be penalized for a third degree felony. These penalties are similar to those associated with the transmission of material harmful to a minor, as each image can add five more years to your prison sentence. If the materials depict a minor under the age of five, prosecutors are also allowed, by law, to request an increased sentence.
What if the pornographic images were downloaded by mistake?
Even if the pornographic material was downloaded by mistake and/or you were unaware of the fact that the individual was under the age of 18, you could still be charged with possession of child pornography; however, it does not necessary mean that you will be convicted.
