Penalties & Sex Offender Registration

It is illegal to produce, manufacture and/or possess pornographic materials depicting children. Regardless of whether or not the minor is engaging in sexual activities with an adult, it is illegal to own or produce any materials that portray a minor in a sexually inappropriate manner. If you are accused of having child pornography, the penalties range from misdemeanor to felony sentences.

A first possession offense is typically charged as a misdemeanor with:

  • A county jail sentence of up to 1 year
  • A fine of up to $1,000
  • Mandatory registration as a sex offender

Your child pornography charge could also be classified as a felony which can carry:

  • A state prison sentence
  • Fines of up to $100,000
  • Mandatory registration as a sex offender

Sex offender registration is a lifetime label that will affect your reputation, your ability to get a job, and where you are able to live and work.

However, by working with a capable attorney, you have the chance to contest your charges and win your case in court.
