Florida Child Pornography Laws
Child pornography laws protect children from exploitation in visual materials depicting sexual conduct. Florida criminalizes the production or promotion of child pornography when an individual makes prohibited materials such as pornographic photos or films involving minors under the age of eighteen. In addition, Florida state laws prosecute individuals who possess, control, or view child pornography, even if they do those activities within the privacy of their own homes.
