Bucks County Possessing Child Pornography Lawyers

Being in possession of child pornography, either in print or digitally, involves serious charges. This is governed by federal law, which also means that the penalties are more severe. If you have been accused of being in possession of such materials, it’s important that you have the right legal counsel at your side.

Whether you’re guilty or not, you need to take the accusations seriously. Bucks County lawyers who specialize in possessing child pornography can work with you to determine how best to build your case based on individual specifics.

What You Need to Know About Child Pornography

Child pornography is identified as pornography that exploits children (anyone under the age of 18) for the purposes of sexual stimulation. The form in which this can be possessed varies. It may be in the form of physical photographs, digital images or even videos.

It is a felony to knowingly possess, control, or intentionally view any form of media that involves sexual conduct involving a child under the age of 18. Further, it is going to involve more serious charges if you are guilty of using a child in a sexual performance or promoting that performance.

Throughout your case, it will be important to identify how you came into possession of the material as well as how much material you actually possess.

The Penalties for Being in Possession of Child Pornography

The penalties for being in the possession of child pornography are severe. There may be different charges that are associated with your case, too.

You may be charged with being in possession. You may also be charged with producing and/or distributing the child pornography. If you are producing or distributing child pornography, it can result in even more serious penalties, including time in prison and hefty fines.

It’s important to understand that if you have been found in possession of child pornography, you can be punished under state and federal laws.

A first-time offense of knowingly being in possession of anything that exploits children for sexual gratification can result in 15 to 20 years in a state or federal prison. Additionally, you may be sentenced to supervised sex offender release programs. You will also, most likely, be required to register in a sex offender database, which is something that will follow you for the rest of your life.

Why You Need a Bucks County Lawyer

A Bucks County lawyer with experience in possession of child pornography cases can assist you throughout the proceedings. They will be able to tell you more about the penalties you could face. Further, they’ll look at the procedures used that led to you being charged.

Police would have to have had probable cause when conducting their investigation. Further, you have to be knowingly in possession of the child pornography. Some items that may have been obtained during the search can be inadmissible in a criminal trial.

You will be able to work closely with a lawyer in order to discuss all of the details of your case. Every case is unique and, therefore, you need a lawyer who will navigate the laws for you. If you’re innocent, the goal is to prove your innocence in the trial. If you’re guilty, the goal will be to reduce your sentencing while proving to the court that you have learned your lesson.

Because possession of child pornography is such a serious crime, it’s important to work with lawyers who are familiar with these types of cases. You only get one chance to be represented in the courts.
