[NSFW] Can minors be busted for selling pornography they made of themselves (inspired by real similar event)?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21447 points ) June 17th, 2013

[NSFW] There was an article I read in the newspaper about 12 years ago of kids (between 7yr—11yr) video taping themselves and passing the tape around. What if those kids got the ideal of turning a buck by filming themselves in various sex acts, going online to those predator sites that point out the location of those convicted of sex crimes with a portable DVD player and the disc they burned hoping to make a sale; would they get in more trouble than the end buyer, or vise versa? Sooner or later the jig would be up and the secret would be out. Once they kids got exposed as oppose to any criminal charges (if any) would they owe taxes on the money if they sold more than $600 in product, even if it were illegal for them to produce it and sale it?

Child pornography is illegal no matter who makes or receives it! The only difference is that kids aren’t imprisoned as long as adults. I think that the kids are marked as sexual predictors.

A couple of years ago my neighbor across the street got his house raided at 5am by a bunch of cops in unmarked cars. They raided his house because they believed that he was abusing his son and putting naked pictures of him online(the son was 12). Turned out that the son was taking pictures of himself and putting them online. Never ended up finding out what the outcome of it all was.

@uberbatman Do you know, or have you learned what the end motivation was of the kid as to why he did it? Was it targeted toward a girl he liked, thrills, dare, something else? Did he use a family computer or did he have his own? Did CPS try to fault the parents for not knowing what was going on?

@Hypocrisy_Central My sister went to school with him and all she ever really said about him was “he’s weird”. I’m guessing he was hitting puberty and hitting up online sex chats or something like that. There was only one comp in the house so yea family comp. As far as fault and all goes I really don’t know what happened.

Yes, they can (in Canada any ways).
