Child Pornography Charges

Child pornography is defined in Florida State law as any image such as a photo, magazine, video or computer file depicting a child under the age of 18 who is engaged in sexual conduct. There are a variety of qualifiers for sexual conduct that exist in Florida statutes, such as actual or simulated sexual intercourse, bestiality, masturbation, sexual abuse, exposure of genitals, physical contact with sexual organs and many others. This crime is commonly filed against family members, family friends or professionals who are in a position of authority over children such as educators, babysitters, clergy or others.

If you have been accused of a child pornography offense, and are facing the repercussions of a conviction, seek the advice of a knowledgeable Punta Gorda criminal defense attorney who can provide you with the insight you need to move forward with confidence. At Leskovich Law Group, P.A., we have gained a reputation for excellence in criminal defense work, and have risen to prominence in the area as defenders of freedom in criminal court.

Penalties for Child Porn Offenses

Anyone who distributes, transmits, manufactures or has possession of child pornography is subject to harsh penalties as determined by the state of Florida. Convictions on charges of the viewing, control or possession of child pornography materials could lead to charges of a third degree felony which imposes sentences up to 5 years as well as fines not exceeding $5,000. Second degree felonies are filed when an individual is convicted of producing or promoting materials with child pornography which lead to penalties of up to 15 years in prison with fines of up to $10,000. Individuals who have previously been convicted of felonies will be subject to more severe penalties reserved for repeat offenders. Any person convicted of child pornography or related sex crimes charge like child molestation or statutory rape must also register in the Florida Sex Offender Database.

Our firm and our reputable attorneys and legal staff have over 25 years of combined experience working to protect our clients from these penalties by delivering confident, compelling and professional defense representation that gets results. Our comprehensive support extends beyond the court room as we provide insight and advice to clients who have been accused and must face the court of public opinion as well.

Sex Crimes Defense in Punta Gorda, FL

Child pornography charges are intimidating, but there are viable defenses that can significantly reduce penalties, or even help you to avoid conviction entirely, based upon the evidence in the case. Accusations of child molestation are sometimes exaggerated or may even be completely false, stemming either from simple misunderstandings or an unethical motivation to get a former spouse or relationship partner into legal trouble. Entrapment is also a common defense in child pornography defense trials, as it may be possible to argue that law enforcement created a situation that influenced the commission of a crime.

Through attention to detail, careful case organization and a deep understanding and experience in criminal defense, our reputable firm has developed customized criminal defense strategies for many clients. Although no attorney can guarantee a particular result in any criminal case, our firm will do everything possible to make sure that your charges have a minimum impact on your life in terms of legal freedom and social relationships. Let us stand up to advocate your needs in court, and do the work to help you move forward as successfully as possible. Contact our firm if you have been accused of child pornography and want high-quality legal representation.
