What are Child Pornography Charges in Rhode Island?
In Rhode Island, child pornography refers to still images, movies or films and, in some cases, writings depicting sexually explicit activities involving a child.
Child pornography can include sexual images involving minors and computer-generated images that appear to involve minors. Child pornography is among the fastest growing criminal segments on the Internet, and producers of child pornography try to avoid prosecution by distributing their material across international borders. However, as has been evident in a number of international operations, this issue is increasingly being addressed through international collaboration by various countries’ law enforcement officials.
