Andrew Cuomo on Families & Children

Democratic Governor


Prohibit Internet access to child pornography

Governor Cuomo and the Legislature also enacted a new law that will more effectively prohibit Internet access to child pornography and ensure that child pornography can never be legally possessed in the state. The legislation prohibits individuals from knowingly accessing, with the intent of viewing, child pornography on the Internet. This legislation closes a loophole to provide that an individual intentionally accessing a website to view child pornography can be charged with a class E felony.

Strengthen penalties for repeat domestic violence offenders

Every day, four women die in this country as a result of domestic violence. In New York alone domestic violence resulted in 91 homicides in 2008--a 25% increase from the previous year. We must bring domestic violence out of the shadows. Far too often, people believe that such violence is a private family matter since it most often occurs in the home, but this is a dangerous misconception. Domestic violence is a crime just like any other; only this crime is often executed on those individuals who are the most vulnerable. As Governor, Andrew Cuomo will work to protect those citizens who cannot protect themselves. He will strengthen the penalties for repeat domestic violence offenders, improve enforcement of orders of protection and guarantee that victims have a safe place to go by putting an end to housing discrimination against victims of domestic violence.
