Child Pornography Charges in Queens

NYC Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

2010 New York Code Article 263 prohibits any act involving or stemming from the sexual performance of a child, i.e. child pornography. Section 263.00 defines "sexual performance" as "any performance or part thereof which... includes sexual conduct by a child." A child is defined as being 16 or younger, though child pornography also includes children 17 and under if they perform obscene sexual acts. It is illegal to produce, promote, possess, download, or view child pornography of any kind.
