Child Pornography Defense

State and federal law enforcement agencies have been spending more time and resources investigating and prosecuting sex crimes against children. As a result, more people than ever are facing investigation and criminal charges relating to child pornography possession or production. Child pornography charges can result in severe punishment under Connecticut and federal laws including facing mandatory minimum jail terms. For example, a conviction of child pornography in the 1st degree can lead to up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $100,000. Five years of such sentence is mandatory and cannot be reduced by the court. If you or your loved one has been charged with child pornography, you need an aggressive and experienced attorney to handle your legal defense.

Possession of Child Pornography and Related Charges

It is possible for anyone to download an image while browsing the internet inadvertently. Unfortunately, if the image is of a minor in a compromising sexual situation, the user may face serious child pornography charges. Moreover, what often starts as a curiosity often becomes an addiction. People quickly lose grasp of what they are doing and go down the dark hole of prohibited internet pornography.  In other cases, police officers will go undercover as dealers of child pornography and may even lure a person into sending images. It is important to work with an attorney with the experience and knowledge needed to perform a forensic investigation to challenge and examine the prosecution’s evidence. Charges that may be brought due to a police investigation for child pornography can include the following:

  • Possession of child pornography
  • Solicitation of a minor
  • Receipt and distribution of child pornography
  • Production of child pornography

In addition to facing time in prison, you will have to register as a sex offender if you are convicted of any of these crimes. You may have to pay restitution to the minors appearing in the images and pay additional fines. The penalties are significant, the charges are serious and an experience defense attorney is a must. 

Legal Defenses Against Child Pornography Charges

The best way to overcome a child pornography charge is to discuss your case with an attorney immediately after arrest. Do not discuss your case with law enforcement officers without an attorney present during an interrogation. Do not confess, do not agree to an interview. Additionally, you should not accept a plea bargain without speaking to your attorney. Those charged with possession of child pornography have to fight for their freedom and reputation.

The early involvement of a skilled criminal defense attorney is crucial for protecting you from potentially devastating consequences. Your attorney will be able to discover the evidence the prosecution has against you and begin developing your defense. There are many different types of defenses in these types of cases, and the best defense in your case will depend on your case’s unique facts and circumstances. However, some of the most common legal defenses include the following:

  • The images in question are not pornography
  • Another person downloaded the images in question onto your computer
  • The images were inadvertently downloaded after you clicked on a deceiving link
  • A law enforcement officer entrapped you

Minors Can Be Charged with Possession of Child Pornography

Many young people face child pornography charges because of images discovered on their cell phones. Their friends may have consensually texted or messaged images of themselves that can be considered child pornography. Warn your children of the dangers posed. If your child is facing charges of child pornography, it is crucial that you discuss your case with an attorney before talking to the police to avoid potential self-incrimination.
