Clarify Sexually Exploitative Material Discovery
Sexual exploitation of a child - no change in discovery procedure. Last session, Senate Bill 17-115, concerning possession of sexually exploitative material by persons involved in sexually exploitative material cases, expanded the group of people who, if they possessed sexually exploitative material in the performance of their duties, could not commit sexual exploitation of a child to all law enforcement personnel and defense counsel personnel. The act clarifies that the sexual exploitation of a child statute does not change the discovery procedure for sexually exploitative materials and that the defendant and defense counsel personnel are not allowed to receive copies of the materials.
