Defending Clients Against Child Pornography Allegations
Child pornography involves the possession of illegal material, but in some cases, if our clients did not actively take any steps to obtain such material, but simply opened an email from an unknown sender, we can move to have the state or government dismiss the charges or significantly reduce them.
In Maryland, the following penalties may apply for the first conviction for possession of child pornography:
- Up to five years in prison; and or
- A fine of up to $2,500.
In these cases, following a specific plan of action that we provide you — including classes to take, evaluations to have performed and several other steps — can help significantly in the resolution of a case with very strong results. We always have your best interest in mind and are looking for the best result we believe we can attain for you. We will keep you informed and take steps that align with your concerns, needs, and best interests.
Our team handles child pornography cases across Maryland, including those involving:
- Possession of child pornography
- Child pornography distribution or sales
- Production of child pornography
- Coercing or manipulating a minor in creating pornographic material
- Federal child pornography charges
