Santa Fe, NM – Representatives Sarah Maestas Barnes (R-Bernalillo), Javier Martinez (D-Bernalillo) and Randal Crowder (R-Curry) will pre-file legislation today backed by Attorney General Hector Balderas to close New Mexico’s child pornography and exploitation loophole.  The current law limits the ability of prosecutors to charge defendants who possess multiple images of children being raped, objectified, and exploited in multiple forms of media and online. Currently, these child predators are only subject to prosecution of one count of child exploitation by possession, irrespective of the number of images they possessed.
