KingÂ’s child-porn bill picks up House support

Thursday, May 01, 2008

A proposal aimed at keeping child pornography out of the hands of accused users of the materials garnered the support of state lawmakers Thursday afternoon when it came before the House of Representatives.

Senate Bill 238, sponsored by Rep. Steve King, R-Grand Junction, would require those accused of possessing child pornography to only be allowed to view the materials in preparation for court in a controlled environment.

Current law requires that prosecutors photocopy or reproduce the child pornography for offenders and their attorneys in preparation for trial.

“That ... I think, is appropriate to keep the victims from being re-victimized from us making copies of pornography,” King said.

The bill passed on a voice vote.

King’s bill could come up for its final vote on the House floor as early as today.
