Child Porn

Being charged with a child pornography offense exposes every part of your life. The prosecution will use its considerable power to paint you as a dangerous sex offender. You need an experienced attorney on your side who can act quickly to protect your personal reputation and defend you against the harsh consequences that can come with a conviction on child pornography.

If you have been arrested or are under investigation, it is crucial to speak to an attorney before you talk to law enforcement. Call 662-260-6646 or contact me online for a free initial consultation with a Tupelo-area child pornography defense lawyer.

Harsh Penalties For Child Pornography

The penalties for merely downloading child pornography can range from five to 10 years in prison for a first offense. That is why it is so important to immediately contact an attorney if you are even so much as questioned about possession of child pornography.

The federal government uses a variety of tactics for monitoring trafficking in child pornography, including intercepting downloads and identifying the IP address that was used to download child pornography. The government aggressively goes after these cases with a task force.

In some cases, people can be charged without ever actually looking up child pornography. How? File-sharing programs such as Limewire or Frostwire are often used to download child pornography, and accidental downloads are not forgiven by federal prosecutors eager to convict individuals involved in the possession and distribution of child pornography.
