child pornography defined
It is not illegal to possess pornography in the state of Wisconsin, unless the photographs, videos or other media are of a child (a person under the age of 18 years) at the time that the photograph, video or other media were produced. Wisconsin laws provide that the statute extends to and includes any person who either knew or should have known the subjects in the media to be a minor child. The sex and sexual orientation of the photographed minor does not matter; the law is explicit on the fact that age is the relevant factor.
Child pornography includes photographs, videos, or any other media of a child in any type of sexually oriented situation, suggestive or actual, in any sexual act, or in preparation of or obviously having completed any act of a sexual nature.
child pornography charges
Wisconsin is very aggressive in pursuing charges for child pornography. Every piece of child porn is charged as a separate crime.
possession of child porn
Under Wisconsin laws, it is enough to have a visual representation of child pornography; the physical print is not necessary. For example, a computerized pornographic photograph of a child may not exist in physical form, but the digitalized form is sufficient for a crime to have been committed.
