The Exploitation of a Minor Charges

Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-17-1003 and § 39-17-1004 describe the "exploitation of a minor" offenses. These crimes are divided into two different offenses: exploitation of a minor, which concerns possession of child pornography, and aggravated exploitation of a child, which concerns the sale, distribution, transport, promotion, or exchange of this material. The severity of both of these crimes depends on the quantity of the materials found by authorities.

The exploitation of a minor charge is as follows:

  • 50 images or materials or less is a Class D felony
  • More than 50 images or materials is a Class C felony
  • More than 100 images or materials is a Class B felony

Aggravated exploitation of minor charge is as follows:

  • 25 images or materials or less is a Class C felony
  • More than 25 images or materials is a Class B felony

Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-17-1005 also describes "especially aggravated exploitation of a minor" which is reserved for producers or creators of child pornography and is a Class B felony. Conviction of any of these crimes will result in significant jail time. As with any sex crime, these kinds of offenses also come with a significant stigma that needs to be powerfully countered both in and out of the courtroom.
