State Legislature Members Serving Ventura County Team Up to Toughen Penalties For Possession Of Child Pornography

Posted on Saturday, February 2, 2013 12:24am

Two legislators from our region are sponsoring a proposed new state law to increase penalties for the possession of child pornography.

Democratic Senator Fran Pavley of Agoura Hills, and Republican Assemblyman Jeff Gorrell of Camarillo are co-authoring legislation which could up the penalty for possession of child pornography from three, to seven years in prison.

The new law would also help differentiate between offenders who have a few images, and those who have hundreds, or thousands. It would give judges expanded discretion to give probation when appropriate, or much stiffer penalties to chronic offenders.
