Possessing Child Exploitation Material (CEM) Charges

Possessing Child Exploitation Material (CEM) Charges? We can assist you if you have been charged in Brisbane, Ipswich, Beenleigh, and Southport.

There are a range of offences in relation to CEM (child exploitation material) under Queensland and Commonwealth legislation. Child exploitation material under the Queensland Criminal Code is defined as material that, in a way likely to cause offence to a reasonable adult, describes or depicts a person, or a representation of a person, who is, or apparently is, a child under 16 years of age in a sexual context; in an offensive of demeaning context; and/or being subjected to abuse, cruelty or torture. Material includes anything that contains data from which text, images or sound can be generated.

The Commonweal Criminal Code relates to similar charges concerning a child. Distinguishing this from the Queensland legislation, it uses differently terminology and broadens the definition to include material that depicts a person, or representation of a person, who is, or appeared to be, under 18 years of age. The offences people are charged with at the Commonwealth level typically relate to use of a carriage service.
