Four Louisiana men face federal child exploitation charges
Posted: 22 Mar, 2017
The laws of the United States contain many provisions dealing with child pornography, including prohibitions on using the internet to acquire, possess and sell such materials. One of the broadest such statutes is the penalty for child exploitation, which makes it illegal to "persuade, induce, entice or coerce a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for purposes of producing visual depictions of that conduct." Four Louisiana men have recently been accused of violating this statute.
