Child Pornography Laws in Illinois

Child pornography laws were established to protect children and act against any person involved in the creation or distribution of sexual imagery. The law also punishes anyone who allows children under their care to participate in child pornography, or to coerce children into participating. It is also illegal to knowingly and voluntarily possess child pornography. Child pornography is not limited to photographs, but may also include videos or any other media showing nude minor or minors participating in sexual acts. If the child involved is less than 13 years of age, the defendant may be charged with aggravated child pornography, and would face more severe penalties.

What is the Punishment for Child Pornography?

Sexual offenses, especially those committed against minors, are taken very seriously in Illinois. Because these penalties may be severe, it is crucial that you seek the help of an experienced Chicago criminal defense attorney who can defend your rights.

Those convicted of a child pornography crime may face the following consequences:

  • Felony charges
  • Substantial prison time
  • As much as $100,000 in fines
  • Lifelong registration as a sex offender in the state of Illinois
  • Probation
  • Community service

These penalties may vary depending on the circumstances of each crime, such as whether or not the accused is a repeat offender, or whether the accused was only in possession of child pornography or was creating and distributing. The court will consider these factors, as well as others, before deciding on a punishment.
