State & Federal Child Pornography Cases in Florida

Child pornography charges can be handled as state or federal crimes. They may be pursued for offenses involving the possession, distribution, or production of sexually explicit conduct involving minors. These cases can be challenging for the fact that they often involve the internet, including transmission via file downloads. In many cases, accused individuals did not intend to download illegal files, especially when a Peer to Peer (P2P) file-sharing program was involved.

Florida Child Pornography Penalties

Child pornography charges carry extremely serious penalties, particularly at the federal level. In fact, some advocates have argued that the penalties for child porn offenses are excessive – sometimes subjecting offenders to more prison time than individuals receive for committing hands-on offenses. Although penalties may vary from case to case depending on the circumstances involved (number of images, specific charge, etc.), the following penalties are common:

  • Large fines and fees
  • Court-ordered restitution
  • Lengthy terms of imprisonment (mandatory minimums in some cases)
  • Sex offender registration

For many, the brand of being a sex offender and mandatory lifetime registration on the sex offender registry can be the most troubling and limiting consequence of a sex crime conviction. With your reputation and future on the line, experienced representation becomes all the more important.
