Author(s): Abdallah Majed Abdelmuttalib Al-Akaylya

The study addressed the crime of using electronic pornography to influence children and people with disabilities in accordance with the text of Article 9 of the Jordanian Cybercrime Law. It also addressed the availability and lack of adequate criminal protection in accordance with the Penal Law. Moreover, the study focused on defining this crime in terms of its concept, nature, place, and the legal form needed for the crime to be realized as well as the stipulated penalties and their adequacy. Finally, the study focused on clarifying the most important legal gaps overlooked by the aforementioned text, especially with regard to the association of the material element with the purposes of influence, direction or incitement. This would narrow the scope of the application of the legal text, so that it leads to the escape of many criminals from punishment. The study concluded with a number of results and recommendations which aimed to recommend the Jordanian legislator to revise the aforementioned text in form and content in accordance with the law.
