NM Supreme Court seeks changes to child porn laws

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – New Mexico’s Supreme Court is recommending the legislature rewrite the law against possession of child pornography.

The state Supreme Court has overturned convictions in two child porn cases saying state law does not make it clear if prosecutors can bring multiple charges against someone possessing multiple images.

The court ruled two men can each be charged with only one count of possession of child pornography.

One of the men had initially been charged with 60 counts of child pornography.
