Child Pornography is a serious criminal offense and one of the most socially stigmatized crimes that one can be accused of perpetrating.  Even with no prior criminal history, a defendant charged with “Sexual Abuse of Children” (Pennsylvania’s child pornography statute, 18 Pa.C.S. §6312) faces significant jail time and the potential for mandatory lifetime sex offender registration under Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law.  The consequences vary depending on whether the defendant is convicted of possessing, distribution and/or producing child pornography.  The specific content of the image(s) as well as the quantity will also have an effect on the outcome of the case.

Often a search warrant is executed and computer equipment is seized months before the suspect is arrested.  It is important to contact a child pornography defense lawyer quickly – the charges will not go away on their own.  Specific action can be taken at early stages to prepare to defend against the imminent child pornography criminal charges.
