- Taken a nude photo of a minor who is not your child, or created any kind of performance that shows them nude
- Consented to another person taking a nude photo of your minor child
- Possessed or viewed anything that shows a nude minor who is not your child
Depending on the nature of the allegation and the offender’s criminal record, pandering can be a second degree felony, punishable by up to eight years in prison.
