Child Pornography Charges
While the most commonly known child pornography charge is possession of child porn, there are a variety of other criminal charges that you may face, including:
- Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition over a Computer Online Service
- Sale or distribution of pornographic materials to minors
- Use of minors in the production of pornographic materials
- Transmission of child porn via electronic device
- Wholesale promotion of obscene materials involving minors
Seizing Your Computer
Anytime that the police arrest someone for a child porn charge, the police will seize the alleged obscene material, most likely the computer itself. If there is reasonable evidence that a person may be engaged in conduct involving child pornography, the police will obtain a search warrant and seize your personal computer. The hard drive of your computer will be examined for child porn. Police will be able to determine what Web sites were visited and what pictures were downloaded. Even images that have been deleted from your computer's hard drive can be recovered by forensic examiners. The mere possession of child pornography is punishable by up to five years in prison. Even if you receive probation, you could be subject to sex offender registration and other onerous consequences.
Defenses in Child Pornography Cases
There may be several defenses in child pornography cases including, but not limited to:
- Someone else had access to your computer and downloaded the images
- The person shown in the image was not a minor or was computer-generated
- You were entrapped by police
- The defendant didn't not have knowledge of possession
Call us to discuss your case. Let our technical experts examine the evidence in your case and explore possible defenses your case. You should never attempt to explain the images to police, as your explanation won't help your case and could hurt if it is not consistent with the evidence.
