I need clarification on a child pornography or exploitation issue.

Atlanta, GA |

If someone takes photographs of small children (with their cell phone) (some photos are naked), places sexually explicit captions on the photos, and sends the photos via cell phone to third parties, is this legal in Georgia?

  1. I suggest that you not disclose so many facts in this public forum and speak with a criminal defense attorney for a legal opinion.


  2. I agree completely with Attorney Parron. Further, if it is a third party that took the photos and/or is disseminating the photos I strongly suggest that you immediately inform your local or state police as to the person that is taking/disseminating said photos and provide the police with all possible assistance that they may require.
