Hello and thank you for using JA! My goal is to provide you with excellent service and help with your legal problem.
I would opine no, as long as the minors are not engaged in or simulating any type of sexual act or lewd display. It it is simply nude photos, this would appear not to violate the law.
This is covered under Montana Code 45-5-625 which specifically references any type of photograph of a child engaging in "sexual conduct, actual or simulated".
The statute then goes on to define what is prohibited:
(b) "Sexual conduct" means:
(i) actual or simulated:
(A) sexual intercourse, whether between persons of the same or opposite sex;
(B) penetration of the vagina or rectum by any object, except when done as part of a recognized medical procedure;
(E) sadomasochistic abuse;
(F) lewd exhibition of the genitals, breasts, pubic or rectal area, or other intimate parts of any person; or
(G) defecation or urination for the purpose of the sexual stimulation of the viewer; or
(ii) depiction of a child in the nude or in a state of partial undress with the purpose to abuse, humiliate, harass, or degrade the child or to arouse or gratify the person's own sexual response or desire or the sexual response or desire of any person.
(c) "Simulated" means any depicting of the genitals or pubic or rectal area that gives the appearance of sexual conduct or incipient sexual conduct.
So if these are simply nude photos that are not showing simulated sexual acts, based on the definition under Montana Code, it would not violate the law.
