Child Porn

Is there a statute of limitations for viewing child porn online as a minor in the state of California? More specifically, if an individual (now 24 years old) viewed said material several years ago before he turned 18, could that individual be prosecuted now?

Incidentally, in this hypothetical situation, the individual cannot remember the exact age he was when viewing the porn online, and the computer used in the activity is gone. No images or video were intentionally saved to the hard drive, and there appears to be no real way to trace the activity, other than the individual's confession.
