Possession of Child Pornography

Child pornography is heavily regulated by both the federal and state governments. Thus, anyone convicted of possession of child pornography faces severe legal penalties including imprisonment and heavy fines. However, there are several defense strategies that can be utilized by individuals who are accused of possession of child pornography.

If you have been charged with the possession of child pornography, you may be shocked to learn that a first-time conviction can lead to a sentence of up to 10 years, and if there are any previous sex crimes on your record, you can be imprisoned for 10-20 years. If you are facing these serious accusations, contact an experienced Houston criminal defense attorney at Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C., today at 713-222-0400.

Potential Defense Strategies

Even if you were completely unaware of illegal content on your computer, or if you did not realize that the content that you were obtaining portrayed underage persons, you may still be charged with possession of child pornography. However, with the help of a skilled attorney, you may be able to defend yourself against possession charges by proving the following:

  • You possessed only 3 or fewer articles of content
  • You did everything in your power to destroy the depictions
  • You reported the matter to the appropriate authorities and surrendered the depictions to them

By showing that you were only coincidentally or unintentionally involved with the illegal depictions, your attorney may be able to have your charges dismissed.
