"This report provides, in tabular format, the major provisions of federal and select state (California, Connecticut, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania) laws that impose civil and criminal sanctions against persons convicted of Internet crimes against children. The states selected were chosen, in consultation with the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), because they have enacted major legislation. The report also summarizes the major provisions and status of proposed legislation currently pending before Congress and respective state legislatures. Pertinent laws are grouped into several subtopics: unwanted sexual solicitation, pornography (children as the subject), and harassment and bullying."
