Child Pornography Convictions Lead To Life-Altering Consequences
In Oklahoma, it is illegal to possess, distribute or create sexually explicit images or videos of minors. It is also illegal to knowingly consent to a minor’s participation in child pornography. If your job involves film, photo processing or computers and you fail to immediately report discovered child pornography, you may also face consequences.
Those convicted of child pornography crimes face years in prison and must register on the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registry for 15 years. Being labeled a level one sex offender restricts where you can live, work and spend your time. The Sex Offender Registry is open to the public; anyone can see your convictions.
If you are convicted of the possession, purchase or procurement of child pornography, you may face up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Making or distributing child pornography may result in a prison sentence of up to ten years and a $20,000 fine. However, if you downloaded the material on a computer, you also may be charged with violating the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act and face additional penalties.
