A new documentary produced by the Child Protection League sheds light on Minnesota’s “child sexual abuse imagery crisis.”

Minnesota is among the most lenient states when it comes to punishing those who traffic in child pornography. Predators are given probation nearly 90 percent of the time, with minimal to no prison time, according to the Child Protection League.

Prosecutors can make the problem worse by electing to charge predators with possession instead of dissemination. They can usually charge either, but possession carries a lower sentence.

“Minnesota has effectively decriminalized the crimes of possessing, disseminating and producing pictures and videos of child sexual abuse imagery,” the Child Protection League said in announcing its new film.
