Child Pornography Charges Lead To Serious Consequences

Child pornography charges can wreak havoc on all areas of your life. From your reputation to your family, having an attorney who knows the law is crucial. Sapone & Petrillo, LLP, has worked with clients throughout New York. If you are facing these accusations, it is imperative that you seek counsel sooner rather than later. The mere claim can have a tremendous impact on your day-to-day life, as well as your future.

What You Need To Know

Our job, as a client’s representative, is to defend them in every way we can. We have dealt with the most complex federal charges. These include cases dealing with the dissemination of more than 100 images of pre-pubescent minors. For computer-related crimes, the best way to prevail at trial is to say that it is not your computer. Our attorneys examine all parts of a case in order to find areas of weakness. For example, did the police have a warrant? Or did they illegally take your property? All of these options should be considered.

The consequences, if you are found guilty, are severe. A first-time offender could be looking at fines and a minimum of 15 to 30 years in prison. For those who are accused of transporting child pornography, it could lead to five to 20 years behind bars. If you have prior convictions, it can make matters even worse. Other considerations are also made when images are found. If they are violent, masochistic or sadistic, you may face life in prison. Simply put, there are mandatory minimums based on certain cases.

Tenacious, Skilled Representation Is Key

Due to the nature of these crimes, having an experienced lawyer is of the utmost importance. Our team listens to the concerns of our clients in order to find the best possible solution. If you handle a case on your own, you could be risking everything you have. Put an advocate in your corner who will fiercely defend your rights every step of the way.
