Queens Child Pornography
Being charged with Child Pornography is a serious matter. A Queens Child Pornography Lawyer can tell you that even if you are found innocent, you may have to contend with social stigma, and difficulty finding or maintaining employment and housing. If you are found guilty, of a sex crime like possession or distribution of Child Pornography, rape, indecent exposure, lewd conduct, or child molestation, the punishments can be severe and include possible prison time, large fines, probation, and possible registration as a sex offender.
Child Pornography is considered any type of image or picture that shows a child (under 18 years old), engaged in a sexual activity or without clothing. If you are found in possession of Child Pornography, it is deemed a state and federal sex crime. Because these sex crimes are taken particularly seriously, the District Attorney and the U.S. Attorney will most likely prosecute them very aggressively. They have also increased the scope of what is deemed Child Pornography to include all different types of imagery, including even cartoon images and other drawings.
State and federal law enforcement have doubled their efforts to end Child Pornography (also known as Kiddie Porn). Police may not only raid an organization that produces the images, they can also aggressively pursue their clientele by accessing credit card records.
