Child Pornography

Accused of Possession or Distribution of Child Pornography? Child Pornography

The possession or distribution of child pornography or exploitation of a minor is a very serious offense. First, these types of charges are often taken to federal court. Second, in almost all cases involving these charges, an expert is going to be needed to refute the State or Federal government's claims. The Olsinski Law Firm, PLLC is an established criminal defense firm with the experience and resources necessary to fight for the rights of clients charged with major state and federal crimes. The courts and society are not favorable to abuse of children and an accusation of child pornography charges can affect the status of the accused at work, with family members, or in the community. An individual with charges involving child pornography should contact a Charlotte criminal defense lawyer or Concord criminal defense attorney at one of our offices for legal assistance and advice as soon as possible.

Child pornography or the sexual exploitation of a minor usually consists of images or films involving a minor child. The degree of the charge, First, Second or Third degree of sexual exploitation of a minor depends on the alleged involvement of the defendant and the images. Filming and selling images is a much more serious crime than downloading illegal images. It is important that you know that there are degrees of involvement that the state or federal government have to prove. The penalties for a conviction can include the following maximum sentence:

  • Prison time from 1-20 years
  • Large fines and court costs
  • Lifetime probation
  • Court mandated sex offender registration for 30 years

Many child pornography arrests occur from sting operations as part of law enforcement actions to curtail the exploitation of children. In their enthusiasm to make arrests mistakes happen and a defense can attack the accuracy and validity of warrants, property seizure and arrest procedures. The courts rely heavily on forensics and other evidence that prosecution presents as part of their case and an effective defense can challenge each piece of evidence that is part of the case. We are upfront with each one of our clients, these cases are long and can get expensive. In most circumstances we will need to hire an expert and that is an additional cost to an already expensive process. The Olsinski Law Firm, PLLC works closely with clients and is always available to answer questions and explain the process. Make an appointment today for a consultation with a criminal defense lawyer regarding your sexual exploitation of a child case.
