Pornography, in accordance with the laws of Virginia, is the visual material that displays sexual organs in a matter of excitement. Child pornography is pornography between two children. Child pornography laws make it a felony in all of the United States of America. Re-making, possessing or sharing the child erotic entertainment will prompt harsh punishments in all states including Virginia. Having, making or sharing child pornography is a general unlawful offense in the state of Virginia.
A web sex crime identified with child pornography is the transferring or downloading of child pornography entertainment content into or from the internet.
In Virginia, police officials sometimes set traps for people who might have an interest in child pornography entertainment. Virginia police officers do so by sharing child pornography content through the web and wait for people who will download or share them. By doing so, Virginia police officials can catch sex offenders who commit internet sex crimes so they can be served as the most suitable punishment.
The laws states that the punishment for sharing illicit images of a minor through the internet depends on the felony class in accordance with the laws of Virginia. A Virginia child porn crime law is classed as a class three felony when the content is shared or advertised to be sold through the internet. This implies that the punishment for such crime is imprisonment for a period that ranges between five to 20 years. A VA child porn crime law is classed as a class four felony when a person operates a website for kiddie porn content. This website will allow people to access kiddie porn easily which are unlawful to access in any case. They are unlawful to access because the United States of America in general views children as innocent people who should not be included in porn as most of them do not know what it means. Since per VA law, owning a kiddie pornography website is a class four felony, the law states that the punishment for the kiddie porn website crime is imprisonment for a period that ranges between two to ten years and sometimes a fine that may reach but not exceed $100,000. In some cases, the court decides to punish the kiddie porn website crime as if the crime is a class A or class one misdemeanor. In this case, the law states that the punishment for creating a kiddie porn website will be a period in jail for a period that may reach but not exceed 365 days and/ or a fine that may go up to but not exceed $2500. Someone who merely has kiddie porn will be accused of a felony of class six. This implies that the law states that the punishment will be imprisonment for a period that ranges between one and five years. A person who commits this crime more than once will be accused of a felony of class five. This means that the offender will be punished per the law by imprisonment for a period that ranges from one to ten years.
In Virginia law, possession of kiddie porn means that the offender searched for kiddie porn on the internet knowing that it will be saved on the device he/she used.
Under Virginia law, anyone who has committed a crime related to illicit images of a minor will be registered as a sex offender.
