Possession of child pornography is a crime that can carry prison sentences and long-term registration as a sex offender, which can make a person's life difficult for many years.
Whether it is charged as a state or federal offense, possession of child pornography involves downloading, possessing or transmitting explicit images of minors, typically through the Internet. In some cases, an image may be downloaded accidentally, while other cases involve storage of many images on a computer. The severity of the charges and the penalties depends on the volume of images, as well as on other factors.

Then, based on the facts of your case and the prosecution's evidence such as images on a hard drive or mobile device, we will work aggressively on your behalf to defend you against the charges.
If you have been charged with child pornography possession, we will carefully review the evidence (which usually includes computer hardware), conduct research, and often work with technology experts who understand how evidence is used in these cases. Our attorneys will gather as much information as possible in order to prepare an appropriate defense, which may involve challenging the accusation that you deliberately accessed or transmitted illegal material, or contesting the illegality of images themselves.
