Attorney: Breastfeeding Isn't Child Pornography, It's Free Speech

Claiming the videos are protected free speech, the attorney for a Tallahassee woman about to go on trial for selling breastfeeding videos online claims the charges should be dropped.  

Two years ago, prosecutors called the videos lewd child pornography and slapped 33-year-old Leigh Felten with more than 45 charges... carrying a potential life in prison sentence.  

Felten has been in jail since her arrest, and her trial is finally coming up. 

Her attorney has filed a motion claiming the seizure of the videos was illegal and that Florida law says women cannot be prosecuted for breastfeeding.

Investigators say the videos, which were sold online and included footage of Felten breastfeeding a toddler and sometimes involved her "rubbing oil on herself and the child and other sexual acts," depict child pornography.

Felten's trial begins April 16.
