SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Sex offender registration; child pornography; penalties. Requires a sex offender to include in the registration information any electronic mail address and any instant messaging screen name that he uses or will use. A sex offender must register any changes in email addresses, instant message, or other identity information within 30 minutes of such information changing. The bill defines child pornography as sexually explicit visual material which utilizes or has as a subject a person less than 18 years of age. The bill establishes enhanced penalties for the production, distribution, solicitation, participation, financing, or photographing of child pornography. The bill also clarifies that, for purposes of punishing production, child pornography means sexually explicit visual material that uses an identifiable minor, and that for purposes of punishing possession or reproduction, a person depicted by text or title or who appears to be less than 18 years of age in sexually explicit material is inferred to be less than 18 years of age. The bill repeals 18.2-374.1:2 but inserts similar language in 18.2-374.1:1 relating to facilitating payment for or access to child pornography. This bill is identical to HB 2749.
