Child Pornography A Nationally Recognized Firm with a Passion for Winning

Cleveland Child Pornography Defense

Facing Child Pornography Charges?

Child pornography is not covered by free speech laws, and any producing, transporting, sharing, receiving, or possessing of child pornography is considered exploitative and illegal. Convictions for child pornography, or pandering, are therefore very serious and could put you behind bars for years and force you to register as a sex offender potentially for life.

If you have been accused of handling child porn, get in touch with a Cleveland child pornography attorney immediately to begin work on your defense.

You Face Devastating Penalties with a Conviction in Ohio

Child pornography encompasses use of nudity-oriented material involving a minor ad pandering obscene material involving a minor. Even if you were unaware that the person was under the age of 18, you could face severe penalties for a conviction.

Depending on the nature of your child pornography charge, a conviction could bring:

  • 2 to 8 years in prison if charged as a second-degree felony
  • 6 to 18 months in prison if charged as a fourth-degree felony
  • $15,000 fine for a second and $5,000 for a fourth-degree felony
  • Mandatory registration with state sexual offender registry
  • Possible federal charges bringing 15 to 40 years in prison

The involvement of federal authorities can complicate your charges and greatly enhance your penalties if convicted. You need a robust defense from our Cleveland sex crime attorneys to avoid a conviction and preserve your freedom.

Call for Your Free Consultation - Qualified Defense Attorneys

We can construct a defense strategy that attempts to discredit the prosecution’s charge that you possessed and/or distributed child pornography. Courts have recognized that mere viewing of child pornography does not constitute possession of it. You may have seen an image unwittingly as the result of a “pop-up” or as an accident while browsing otherwise benign sites. If you were unaware that a certain site contained illegal images, you may also be able to fight your charges.

No matter the details of your case, our Cleveland sex crime defense firm can take on the prosecution and fight against your child pornography charges to secure your freedom.
