Case highlights inconsistency between N.Y. statutory rape laws, federal child porn laws

Law.com: “A federal appeals panel has thrown out a child pornography conviction that was based on explicit photographs texted by a 17-year-old to her field-hockey coach. The 2nd U.S. Court of Appeals held there was no evidence that defendant Todd Broxmeyer asked 17-year-old ‘A.W.’ to take the pictures, and therefore no evidence that he ‘produced’ them as defined by the federal child pornography statutes.” | USA v. Broxmeyer, No. 09-1457-cr (2nd Cir. Aug. 3, 2010)
