Los Angeles Child Pornography Lawyer

Legal defense Against State or Federal Child Porn Charges

Child pornography is loosely defined as the depiction of any minor engaged in "sexually explicit conduct". Because of the type of crime it is, charges tend to be harsh, with the prosecution aggressively pursuing a conviction. It takes a knowledgeable criminal lawyer to be effective in the defense of these types of cases.

If arrested for child pornography you could face either state or federal charges depending on the seriousness and circumstances surrounding the allegations. Both state and federal charges can result in heavy fines and imprisonment and having to register as a sex offender. The severity of the charges will revolve around possession or distribution, with distribution being the more severe offense.

What enhances child porn charges in California?

Additionally, "enhancement" charges are possible under the following circumstances:

  • Prepubescent Enhancement - When a minor (under the age of 18) who is depicted is prepubescent (at the stage of life before puberty) the charges may be enhanced.
  • Penetration Enhancement - Enhanced penalties may apply if actual penetration is depicted in the child pornography.
  • Quantity enhancement - If a large amount of material is involved in the charges then one could face enhance penalties.
