Charges of Child Pornography may Include Other Crimes

In many cases, charges of child pornography may lead to other related charges being pressed against the defendant as well. You may be charged for each crime on an individual basis.

The following are examples of related (but separately prosecutable) crimes:

  • Lewd behavior with a minor child
  • Sexual battery of a minor child
  • Rape or Statutory rape of a minor child
  • Fondling of a minor child
  • Other sex acts with a minor child

Any sexual act against or with a child under the age of 18 is considered to be a sex crime. Children are considered unable to consent to sexual acts. Launching an early defense with an experienced Florida child pornography lawyer is best defense against your charges.

Severe Penalties for Violating Child Pornography Laws

If you have distributed child pornography over the internet or through the mail, not only are you facing charges with the state of Florida, but you are also eligible to have federal charges brought against you.

The penalties for a person convicted of child pornography in Florida may include the following:

  • Time in Prison: This could include 5-30 years spent in prison due to a mandatory prison term.
  • Life Sentence: This could mean lifetime without the possibility of parole in prison for repeat offenders.
  • Sex Offender Registration: This could involve the permanent addition of your name to the National Sex Offender Registry as well as to the state of Florida sex offender registry. This information must be updated and maintained throughout the rest of your life if convicted.
  • Difficulty Finding Employment: Employers generally do not hire those who have been convicted of child pornography, so employment opportunities will either be limited or non-existent.
  • Restrictions with Children: A person convicted of child pornography may be restricted as to whether or not they can be anywhere around children.

Florida state and federal agents have absolute zero tolerance when it comes to sex crimes against children. If you have just one picture or video of a minor child participating in a sexual act in your possession, you will most likely be charged with child pornography.
