Re: Computer technician finding illegal activity

said by jaa:

I am not a lawyer, but it seems computer technicians are under no obligation to report.

Among the list of "mandated reporters" in the State of California":

Commercial film and photographic print processor

»mandatedreporterca.com/who/who.htm

Although computer technicians apparently aren't mandated, currently, I am guessing they would have grounds for action if they were terminated for reporting, based on this listing.

FYI: "Mandated reporters" is for child abuse - CP is commonly coded separately. (Not that CP isn't child abuse - child sexual exploitation certainly IS... but the laws and penalties might differ for each in different states, so being not on the mandated reporters list does not mean you don't have to report found CP).

"Commercial film and photographic print processors" are much more likely to encounter child pornography than simple child abuse.

Norm, I agree, but different states have different laws and while some may have rolled their CP laws into their child abuse laws (or sexting or human trafficking), others have additional CP statutes.

Here's the federal statutes which you'll see child abuse and CP are separated into different statutes:
»codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/42/132/IV

It's very wise to be sure in your state what the statutes are.
