Arizona Pornography Laws

亚利桑那州对虐待儿童和色情制品的监管是全国最严厉的. Both are felony crimes. 被判对儿童犯罪的人有时会在监狱里呆上几十年,永远没有获释的希望.

亚利桑那州的儿童色情法律是由一项综合立法管理的. Child pornography, often known as child exploitation or sexual exploitation of minors, encompasses a wide range of actions. “Recording, filming, photographing, developing, 或复制任何涉及未成年人利用性展示或其他性行为的视觉描绘,” according to Arizona law, is illegal.

State law classifies child pornography as a Class 2 felony. 每张照片或性行为的定罪都会被判10年监禁. In other words, 一名罪犯将因每张色情照片被判处10年监禁. You might face a sentence of 50 years in jail if you downloaded five photos.

If you are convicted of pornography or child molestation in Arizona, you will face a lengthy jail sentence. However,  there are potential safeguards in place. 如果律师能证明被告不知道自己在做什么,这就是对指控的辩护.

What Is Considered Child Pornography?

According to ARS 13 3553在美国,从事儿童色情活动的经营性犯罪是对未成年人的性剥削. 任何有关青少年参与法律所指的剥削性展示或其他性活动的视觉描绘都被视为儿童色情. 具体行动包括有意地对未成年人进行性或剥削行为进行以下视觉描述.

  • Possessing
  • Recording
  • Filming
  • Duplicating
  • Receiving
  • Selling
  • Buying
  • Electronically transmitting
  • Exchanging

At the end of the day, no matter the format the material is in, it is still child pornography under the law. The lack of any form of sexual intercourse is not a legal defense.

What Are the Penalties for Child Pornography in Arizona?

    • Minimum 3 years in prison and maximum 12.5 years in prison

What Are Defenses for Child Pornography?

When facing a charge for possession or distribution of child pornography, it’s important to understand the possible defenses. We list some of the tactics a Phoenix criminal defense attorney might employ.

Unintentional Possession

Unintentional possession, often known as unintended possession, is one possible defense tactic when facing child porn accusations. This means you didn’t intend to have child porn in your hands, or the banned content wasn’t yours to begin with. It’s possible you were completely unaware of its existence.

当共享驱动器上的儿童色情内容被发现,或者除你以外的其他人可能在你不知情的情况下访问了该驱动器, an accidental child porn defense may apply. When a computer is utilized for work, for example, this may be the case. 另一个人可能在这种情况下获得了儿童色情, and then blamed you for it. It’s also conceivable that you utilized an unprotected or public network, allowing others to access child pornography without your awareness.

In order to frame you for the offense, an enraged spouse, ex-spouse, lover, ex-lover, coworker, or employee may upload child pornography onto your computer. 这样的个人可能会提醒当局您的计算机上存在内容. You might be unjustly accused of having child porn in this situation.

另一个重要的考虑是你买的电脑是二手的还是二手的. 如果是这样的话,就有可能为偶然拥有儿童色情作品辩护. 在计算机取证专家的帮助下,一个熟练的儿童色情律师可以澄清这一点. They can detect when the item was downloaded and, in some cases, decide that you could not have downloaded it.

Accidental Possession

As you may be aware, the Internet can be a dangerous place, and your computer might be infected with a virus, spyware, spam, or other unwanted content without your knowing or agreement. Without your knowledge or agreement, 黑客可能会将儿童色情或其他非法图片上传到你的电脑.

许多人都不知道他们的电脑上有大量的文件. Unintentional possession of child pornography might be a legitimate defense.

Illegal Search and Seizure

指控非法搜查或逮捕是另一个可行的儿童色情辩护. 根据第四修正案,警察经常犯侵犯个人基本权利的程序错误. If material was obtained improperly by police, regardless of your culpability, your defense counsel can claim that it is inadmissible as evidence. This means that they cannot use this evidence against you.

据悉,警方为了获得没收电脑或其他儿童色情资料的搜查令而撒谎. Alternatively, 警方可检查搜查令中没有明确指明的电脑或密封容器, going further than the scope of the request.

Entrapment

A related child porn defense is alleging police entrapment, 当当局强迫你犯下你本不会犯下的侵犯儿童色情的罪行时,就会发生这种情况. 你的论点是,如果警察没有接近你并鼓励你实施犯罪, you would not have done so.

警方还可能诱使人们获取非儿童色情视频,也没有标记为儿童色情, 然后逮捕他们,因为他们购买了儿童色情物品,而他们自己却没有意识到. When police conduct a child pornography sting operation, they frequently entrap numerous people, not all of whom are culpable, in a broad net.

Not Child Pornography

Under Arizona and federal law, child pornography has precise criteria. These requirements must be met for something to be classified as child porn. Typically, 这意味着,该材料必须在露骨的性环境中展示裸体儿童或未成年人.

如果这些内容中的人实际上是18岁或以上,那么这些内容就不是儿童色情. 因此,检察机关必须证明材料中的人未满18岁. It might also be possible to argue that, 因为这些材料涉及的人是你的配偶,而且年龄不超过你两岁, it was not child porn.

Psychological Addiction

While claiming a behavioral addiction to child porn isn’t a viable defense, it can help you get a lighter sentence if you’re convicted. 与儿童色情成瘾作斗争的人可能会被判刑接受治疗,而不是在特定情况下被监禁.
