Under Arizona law, anyone paid to appear in a pornographic movie may be guilty of the crime of prostitution
Gilbert, Az (PRWEB) March 23, 2012
Arizona Family Council is aware of the pornographic film industry’s interest to move to Arizona from California and has been working in the community, informing media, and educating lawmakers about the detriment this industry is to a community.
Arizona already has laws in place that make the pornographic film industry illegal in our state.
The Arizona Family Council is very pleased to hear the strong statement Maricopa County Attorney, Bill Montgomery, issued against the pornographic film industry moving to Arizona. “Under Arizona law, anyone paid to appear in a pornographic movie may be guilty of the crime of prostitution, which carries mandatory jail time as well as the possibility of other penalties…Accordingly, Arizona law precludes the establishment of a “pornography industry” to any degree such as that present in California.” (Full statement found at http://www.maricopacountyattorney.org/newsroom)
The existing Arizona laws and the commitment to the enforcement of these laws will be a powerful deterrent to the pornographic film industry moving to Arizona.
Arizona Family Council will continue to educate and empower citizens and families in this effort to keep our communities safe.
