Consequences for Child Pornography Crimes
Any time a person downloads content containing child pornography, they
are at risk for intense legal punishment. Both state and federal law enforcement
actively use sting operations to catch offenders. In such instances, merely
downloading a child pornography file can lead to a conviction.
- Penalties for owning or distributing child pornography include:
- Lifetime sex offender registration
- Fines totaling thousands of dollars
- Extensive time in prison
- Increased penalties for multiple offenses
These punishments may also be received for possessing images of anyone
under 18 years of age. Being younger than 18 is not a defense to possessing
child pornography. A teenager who possesses sexually explicit images of
his or her boyfriend or girlfriend may be guilty of a child pornography offense.
We can defend you!
Fortunately, there are many valid defenses to child pornography allegations.
Many people download child pornography without realizing that the content
involves a minor. Sometimes, law enforcement officials overstep their
boundaries and either violate search and seizure Constitutional protections
or engage in entrapment. In other cases, pornographic material actually
belongs to a third party and the defendant has been mistakenly accused.
This serious crime requires top representation. Depending on your situation,
our firm may be able to apply a number of different defenses to ensure
that your rights and freedoms are protected. The sooner you retain counsel
