Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
Now that being said, it would still need to be proven...
This statute requires knowing or intentional action. If an underage girl came on screen without your knowledge, etc... then that would not be knowing. Furthermore, while this is also interpreted to mean viewing the pictures, it's almost always used in the intentional context to prosecute the purveyors of the child pornography.
But again, it would require knowledge. If it was outside the control of the viewer, or knowledge that the subject was underage, then there wouldn't be a chance of success in a prosecution.
Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer. Please note that I don't get any credit for my answer unless and until you rate it a 3, 4, 5 (good or better). Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX luck to you!
