Westchester County Child Pornography
A Westchester County Child Pornography Lawyer can explain that whether you are innocent or guilty, a charge of Child Pornography is very serious. Sex Crime charges carry a social stigma, and the accused may face damage to their professional and personal relationships even when innocent. If you are found guilty of a sex crime such as rape, statutory rape (sex with a minor), forcible touching, spousal rape, lewd conduct, or sexual abuse, the legal penalties can be significant, and may include prison time, probation, fines and the requirement to register as a sex offender. If you are facing Child Pornography charges, it is important to take prompt action and contact a Westchester County Child Pornography Lawyer from our team at Stephen Bilkis and Associates, PLLC.
Child pornography includes pictures and visual images of children who are under eighteen years of age, either unclothed, and/or portrayed in a sexual context. Because this crime involves the victimization of children, law enforcement agencies have expanded what is considered pornographic to include other types of characterizations of children, even including cartoon images.
Both the U.S. Attorney and the District Attorney are focused on eradicating this type of crime. They aggressively seek out not only the individuals who produce these images, but also pursue their customers who purchase them as well. Often law enforcement will raid a company that creates and distributes these images, and obtain their client information from credit card records. They may then locate and arrest the purchasers of these materials.
