Ohio's Child Pornography Offenses

Section 2907.322 Pandering Sexually Oriented Matter Involving a Minor: It is unlawful to create, record, photograph, film, develop, reproduce, or publish any material showing a minor participating or engaging in any type of sexual activity.

This statue criminalizes advertising for sale, selling, transporting, exhibiting, displaying, soliciting, purchasing, possessing, and controlling any material showing a minor engaging in any type of sexual activity. In Ohio, mistake of age is not a defense to a charge under this section.

Pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor is a felony of the second degree; however, knowingly receiving, purchasing, or possessing child pornography is a felony of the fourth degree.

Section 2907.323 Illegal Use of Minor in Nudity-Oriented Material or Performance: No person shall photograph, create, direct, product, or transfer any material that shows a child in the state of nudity. It is unlawful to possess, view, sell, disseminate, display, control, or bring into the state any material depicting a child nude.

A violation of this section can be prosecuted as a felony of the second, fourth, or fifth degree depending on the circumstances of the case.
