In cooperation with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Law Center recently undertook a national project to update state legal manuals for several states dealing with Child Exploitation Crimes. This update project was the result of cooperation from NCMEC as well as the work of law clerks at the National Law Center as well as law schools from around the US.
STAY TUNED! In 2017, the National Law Center will be reviewing and periodically updating these state legal manuals.
The following manuals are only a basic legal review of a state’s case and statutory laws covering aspects of Child Exploitation Crimes. They are for educational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice, nor is an attorney client relationship intended to be created. Local counsel should be consulted as to the laws of your jurisdiction.
