Naked Baby Photos Lead to Parents' Arrest
The case of a Utah couple charged with a crime for photos they took of a father kissing his naked baby is far from clear cut and simple. It will take
a while to fully understand the rights and wrongs of photographing your naked baby. These particular Utah parents were arrested and deported, and
others could run into similar problems.
What happed to Alma Vasquez and Sergio Diaz-Palomino this past spring has brought up questions about how safe it is, not just for children, but for
their parents, to post naked baby pictures online. Or, in this case, to send them to Walgreens to be developed, reports MSNBC. The Utah couple sent
pictures to the local Walgreens which showed Diaz-Palomino kissing his son's buttocks and allegedly his genitals after the couple bathed the infant. A
worker flagged the pictures for police who arrested the couple. Although charges of sexual exploitation of a minor and sexual abuse were dropped, both
parents were deported.
Naked baby pictures that were once considered harmless, like bathtub time, or shots of kids running naked through the sprinklers, are now considered
possible child porn. Some parents are now rethinking posting baby pictures online with sites such as Flicker or Facebook because they are worried
about who could see them. Then there is the danger of harmless pictures being viewed as anything but harmless by authorities. Child pornography can be
legally defined as the production, possession or distribution of pornographic materials that exploit or portray a minor. Obviously, this definition
could catch a wide range of images in its
Now I am all for the stopping of these images, and my thread was done to show the dichotomy that seems to exist in this regard......
But then these laws are not being used where they should and abused where they shouldnt!
