The internet has not only brought about easy photographic transmission and anonymity; it has also resulted in a deluge of child pornography cases around the country. Child pornography can be any image, photo, video, computer program or file that depicts children engaging in sexual acts. Most federal child pornography charges have minimum sentence requirements, and defendants who are convicted could face years in prison. In many cases, government investigators trace illegal images to an IP address, which prompts police officers to conduct a search, and child pornography is then found on a suspects’s computer. If you are being investigated for child pornography, it is essential that you refrain from speaking to any law enforcement officers until you have discussed your situation with an experienced child pornography defense lawyer. Those who try to talk their way out of trouble without the advice of a knowledgeable attorney could inadvertently solidify the prosecution’s case.

In some cases a person charged with child pornography is actually an innocent victim of a sting operation. More so than most other non-violent criminal convictions, a conviction for child pornography will drastically impact your family life, career and social life. If not effectively defended, it could taint your reputation forever.
