What is Child Pornography?

Child Pornography- empty swing in a misty parkChild pornography is any image depicting a minor engaged in sexual conduct. (Florida Statute § 847.001(3)). No actual contact with a child has to occur. Mere possession of a photo that presents a child engaging in sexual conduct can result in charges against you and require registering as a sex offender for life. The distribution of such materials carries much harsher penalties.

Available Child Pornography Defenses

Sometimes people unwillingly receive photos that constitute child pornography. This can happen when child pornography is distributed through email or text message and the recipient had no idea these types of photos were coming to them. Moreover, you may have innocently clicked on a link that brought you to websites displaying child pornography. There may also be instances where someone is caught with child pornography on their computer, but they did not personally download or receive the images; it was someone else using their computer. In order to avoid being falsely accused of possessing child pornography it is important to monitor who is accessing your computer and your cell phone. It is also vital that you seek the counsel of a child pornography defense attorney immediately if you are facing child pornography charges!

Getting Caught With Child Pornography

Find a list below of the possible ways in which you can be caught in possession of child pornography:

  • Every computer has what is called an IP address. This IP address can be used to identify whether your computer has accessed any child pornography. If you are suspected of having accessed child pornography you can become a suspect and placed under investigation.
  • IP addresses sometimes lead investigators the wrong person. There have been some recent cases where the government targeted the neighbor with the unsecured wireless network instead of the actual offender.
  • You may also be caught with child pornography on your hard drive if you go to have your computer repaired. If a computer repair man finds child pornography on your hard drive they have to report you to the authorities.

Possible Penalties of Child Pornography

In the State of Florida, transmitting or sending child pornography is a felony in the third degree. A felony of the third degree is punishable by imprisonment of at least 5 years. Each individual child pornography image is a separate crime. This means that a person caught with 10 child pornography images, can face a minimum of 50 years in prison.

The federal government punishes both the receipt and distribution of child pornography with a minimum prison sentence of 5 years and a maximum of 20 years. Possession of child pornography with the intent to view has a maximum prison sentence of 10 years.

You will also have to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life if you are convicted of possessing or distributing child pornography.
