Predators Face Severe Penalties

Several laws increase the probability that sexual predators who harm children will suffer severe consequences, including the Mann Act, the Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Act of 1994, the PROTECT Act of 2003 and the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006. FEDERAL LAW BARS U.S. RESIDENTS FROM ENGAGING IN SEXUAL OR PORNOGRAPHIC ACTIVITIES ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WITH A CHILD UNDER 18. (For those who question the legalities of U.S. residents choosing to involve themselves with children, this is the law! And since many on Nicaliving and the Real Nicaragua claim they feel laws should be followed, it might be wise if they familiarized themselves with THIS law!) ICE is working with law enforcement agencies and advocacy groups around the globe to investigate crimes of this nature. Those convicted in the U.S. face significant penalties:

* Possession, manufacture, distribution of child pornography: Maximum 30 years in prison
* Child sex tourist, child sex tour operator, or participant in these crimes: Maximum 30 years in prison
* Sex trafficking of children for prostitution: Maximum life sentence
