Child Sexual Exploitation & Enabling

Child sexual exploitation is a felony crime in Oklahoma. This means that if convicted, you may go to prison. Oklahoma law takes any crime committed against a child very seriously so it is important to understand the definition of this crime and its penalties because they could have a permanent impact on your future.

What is Child Sexual Exploitation?

In Oklahoma, child sexual exploitation is a form of child sexual abuse that manipulates a child’s sexuality for personal satisfaction or monetary gain.  While this term can encompass a broad range of activities, it often involves compelling a child to participate in sexually graphic or suggestive acts for visual media such as photographs or videos. However, if the victim is under the age of 12, Oklahoma statute considers this a separate offense. Examples of child sexual exploitation can include:

  • • Child prostitution
  • • Forcing a child to pose for nude photographs
  • • Coaxing a child to perform a sexual act on camera

What are the Penalties for Child Sexual Exploitation?

If you are convicted of child sexual exploitation, the state of Oklahoma can impose one or a combination of the following penalties:

  • • 1 year in county jail and/or a $500-$5,000 fine
  • • Up to life in prison

As with many other crimes committed in Oklahoma, the courts can also add up to three years of mandatory supervision following your release from prison.

What is Enabling Child Exploitation?

Enabling child sexual exploitation is also a crime in Oklahoma. You could be charged with this offense if you knowingly or purposely allow someone to sexually exploit a child. For example, if you knew that someone was taking pornographic photos of your child or other children and you did nothing to stop it, then you would be enabling child sexual exploitation.  Giving your child permission to participate in a pornographic photoshoot is also enabling child sexual exploitation.

What are the Penalties for Enabling Child Sexual Exploitation?

If you are convicted of enabling child exploitation, you could be facing one or a combination of the following penalties:

  • • 1 year in county jail and/or a $500-$5,000 fine
  • • Up to life in prison
