In a new bill that moved to the House floor on Thursday, local legislators are looking to intensify penalties for manufacturing and intending to distribute pornographic material involving minors.

“The surge in child pornography on the internet has led to increased victimization and trafficking and an increase in sexual violence against increasingly younger children,” testified Sen. Chis Wilson, R-Logan, to the Senate Judiciary, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee during a meeting on Feb. 17. “Sexual exploitation of minors causes added harm to their emotional, mental and psychological well-being.”
