Child Pornography

Defense Attorneys Serving Clients in Punta Gorda & All of Florida

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. 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 can be given extremely harsh penalties as determined by the state of Florida.

  • Convictions on charges of the viewing, control or possession of child pornographic materials could lead to charges of:
  • $10,000 in fines
  • A second or third degree felony
  • Prison sentences reaching 15 years in prison per count

Individuals who have previously been convicted of felonies will be subject to even more extreme penalties reserved for repeat offenders. A sex crime such as this, as with statutory rape or child molestation, requires that the offender also register as a sex offender. This destroys ones reputation for a lifetime.

Our firm and our reputable attorneys and legal staff have over 35 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 child pornography defense in trials, as it could be the case the authorities invented a situation that led to your commission of the 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. While we could never guarantee any certain outcome in your case, we will do everything in our power to achieve the best possible result or minimize the damage this charge has on your life, freedom, and 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.
