Illegal Use of Minor - Ohio Revised Code 2907.323

Section 2907.323 of the Ohio Revised Code prohibits the illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material or performance. Like the pandering obscenity statute, this statute prohibits a wide range of conduct and is increasingly referenced in the media as a result of the increase in prosecutions of computer based sex offenses. A violation of 2907.323 can be punished as either a fifth degree felony, fourth degree felony or second degree felony. This depends upon which subsection of the statute a person is charged.
