Distributing Child Pornography

Most of our clients don’t consider themselves to be criminals; they have jobs and families, friends and children. Some even have grandchildren. But Internet pornography is easily accessible, and sometimes people stumble upon things that they shouldn’t be looking at, even if they were easy to find. The Government usually doesn’t charge people who have only looked at a few illegal pictures (although it sometimes happens), but prosecutors will go after anyone who trades these pictures or sends them to others.

Short of being the person who actually produces the images or videos of children involved in sexual conduct, those accused of distributing that content can face the full wrath of the Government, with all the power it wields. Even being accused of distributing child pornography can have severe repercussions on someone’s life, even if they’ve been wrongly accused. Such charges — no matter how mistaken they may have been — can follow you around for life. This can result in a loss of your reputation and rights, in addition to being ostracized by friends and family.

Those charged with production or distribution of child pornography can expect to face many hurdles in court: high bail requests from the Government, mountains of electronic evidence to review, and a presumption in the press and the court of public opinion that you are guilty.

At the Brill Legal Group, we are highly experienced in representing defendants in child pornography cases, and can offer reasonable defenses in many situations. For instance, some people charged with distribution of child pornography have been under the impression the individual was a consenting adult, while others distributed artistic representations of children that should not be considered pornographic. Still others were entrapped into distributing child pornography by overzealous law enforcement officials. That’s where the Brill Legal Group comes in — our respected attorneys can help drive these points home, especially when prosecutors are hostile to our clients.

The Charges Behind Distributing Child Pornography

If you’ve been charged with distributing child pornography, here’s what you’ll be facing: Under 18 USC § 2252(a) and 18 U.S.C. § 2252A(a)(2), you can be charged with distributing child pornography if you send illegal images “by any means including by computer.” In short, if you’ve been caught in a situation where you uploaded images or emailed pictures to a friend, or sent them in any other way, through any means, you can be charged with distributing child pornography.
