It appears that Carrie Prejean is the latest to fall from the almighty Conservative/Christian throne. With the year this young lady has had, why is she still in front of cameras? Well, she went from Miss California to "In my country, in my family, I think I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman ..."
As indicated by Professor Douglas A. Berman, Carrie "could be technically subject to the five-year minimum [sentence] under 18 USC 2252(a)(2) for distributing material involving the sexual exploitation of minors," as a result of producing and distributing "child porn."
While authorities and legislators have shown that they are willing to possibly be a little more lenient with sexting (texting nude pictures), as the federal child porn statute currently stands, possession of and transmitting child porn is against the law, regardless of who is responsible.
This sex tape that Carrie Prejean made is comparable to cases that have already resulted in convictions of minors who have produced and manufactured child porn for boyfriends/girlfriends; and those convicted have become registered sex offenders.
In America, sadly, this will probably only help her book sales. There is no doubt that her conduct, if it is as alleged, meets the statutory elements. However, as with the various sexting cases, the story of Prejean illustrates how reliant we have become on prosecutorial discretion in such matters.
