Child porn is considered a heinous crime, and people who are arrested at
the federal level on these types of charges are often tried and found
guilty by the media and their communities long before their case ever
goes to trial.
Whether you are innocent or have made a mistake in judgment, an arrest on a
federal charge of child pornography or other Internet
sex crime involving a minor can spell the end of your career and destroy your family.
If you are convicted, you will likely be facing prison time, fines and
the requirement to register as a sex offender with the Pennsylvania state police.
Even if you believe that the federal authorities in Pennsylvania are only
investigating you for child porn or other Internet sex crimes, it is critical
to work with an attorney who understands how to protect your rights and
defend your freedoms in hot-button situations like these.
Innocent Mistakes Can Result in Child Porn Charges
Sometimes people who are arrested on charges of child pornography do not
realize that they have committed a crime. For example, did you realize
that just sending a sexually graphic text message can result in a charge
of child pornography?
Child pornography includes but is not limited to:
- Permitting a child to engage in or simulate a sex act with a minor
- Knowingly taking a picture of, videotaping, depicting or simulating on
a computer a minor (under 18 years old) in a prohibited sex act
- Selling pictures, magazines, brochures, slides, photos, films, computer
depictions or a simulation of a minor in a prohibited sex act
