The Exploited Children’s Rights Act will make Florida the first state to allow victims of Florida-based child pornography to seek civil remedies against those who download images of that child’s sexual abuse. The legislation will also allow the Attorney General’s Office to pursue these cases on behalf of the victims at their request. You can read more about the bill and the reasons for its proposal at the Florida Attorney General Website.
