What Is Child Pornography?

Child pornography is pornography involving a person who is under the age of 18. Most people who face child pornography charges are accused of having multiple sexual images of young children on their computers or cellphones. Until recently, however, even Florida teenagers could be charged with distributing child pornography for sexting explicit images of themselves or other teens.

State law enforcement departments may refer child pornography cases to the federal court system, where you may be subject to a five-year mandatory minimum prison sentence for a first offense. It is important to seek legal representation as soon as possible.

Do I Have A Defense?

The government has the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that you possessed or distributed child pornography. Even if the police obtained evidence of child porn on your computer or cellphone, there are defenses such as the following:

  • Someone else downloaded the images on your computer.
  • You did not knowingly take any actions to acquire the images.
  • You took reasonable steps to destroy the images as soon as you discovered them.
