House approves child pornography forfeiture bill

Posted: Sunday, April 08, 2001

JUNEAU (AP) -- Property used to break child pornography laws would be forfeited to the state under a bill approved Friday by the state House.

House Bill 32, sponsored by Rep. Joe Hayes, D-Fairbanks, requires forfeiture of computers, cameras, audio equipment or any devises used in creating, receiving, distributing or storing child pornography.

Hayes said the bill was written to help law enforcement officers protect children from sexual predators.

The bill passed unanimously and now heads for the Senate for consideration.
