Child Pornography Bill

A bill that would increase the charge for possessing "sexually explicit material" in Virginia has sailed through the House of Delegates.

Local delegate Chris Saxman, who sponsored the bill, wants to make it even tougher.

Right now, the charge for possession would be increased from a misdemeanor to a felony.

Saxman wants to amend the bill to require those convicted of possessing child pornography to register as a sex offender with their local police.

It's now being considered by the Senate's Courts of Justice Committee.
