Child Pornography Charges: Penalties and Civil Commitment

If you’ve been charged with any child pornography offense — be it possessing, distributing, transporting and/or receiving it — it’s important to have an experienced legal team by your side. Punishments for child pornography are understandably severe; however, if you’ve been wrongly accused or entrapped into child pornography charges, it’s in your best interest to contact a legal team that can help you fight for your rights.

Prosecutions on child pornography charges can be pursued at both the state and federal level; this means that many defendants often face sentences that can carry decades in prison, as state and federal judges are often determined to make an example out of these defendants. If you want to ensure you’re not subjected to an overly aggressive court system, contact the Brill Legal Group, which is just as aggressive in defending your rights and reputation.

Punishments and Penalties for Child Pornography Charges

Punishments for child pornography charges can run the gamut from moderate to severe, depending on the charge and the extent of the images the defendant has or has distributed. For example, if you’ve been accused of possessing, distributing, transporting and/or receiving child pornography — and it’s your first offense — defendants can be fined and imprisoned for up to 20 years. Certain charges, however, can carry no minimum jail time.

However, if a person has a prior felony conviction or a conviction for a sex offense, the punishments can be much more severe. Defendants with these prior convictions can be fined and imprisoned for a minimum of 15 years, and up to 40 years.

In the most extreme cases, even after a defendant has finished serving his sentence, the Government can move for civil commitment, claiming the defendant is too dangerous to allow out of jail, ever. Our attorneys have successfully counseled clients who have faced these very issues.
