TALLAHASSEE (CBS4) – The Florida Senate voted to extend the state’s anti-child pornography law to include intentionally looking at such images even if one does not download them.

The bill (SB 846) was approved 39-0 on Friday. A similar bill (HB 595) is in the House.

It requires proof that someone looked at more than one image or movie to protect those who may accidentally come across such material on the Internet.

The law is already a third-degree felony and is punishable by up to five years in prison.
