Distribution Attorney Defense for Clients Across Ohio, North Carolina & Florida
Under state and federal laws, distributing sexually explicit images or videos of minors is generally illegal. Distribution charges are considered one of the most serious offenses and are typically accompanied by possession or receipt charges. These charges will most likely carry heavy penalties, including lengthy incarceration, high fines, and mandatory registration as a sex offender. Additional penalties may be applied depending on the number of files found, the egregious nature of the photos, and other aggravating factors.
Charges associated with the distribution of child porn can include sending images/videos through:
- Instant message
- Text messages
- File-sharing networks and programs
Even if you somehow accidentally download child pornography through peer-to-peer file sharing networks, you can still be charged with distribution. These networks generally initiate file sharing automatically when you are logged on, which means you are considered a perpetrator under the law.
Whether you are being investigated for the distribution of child pornography or your teenage son or daughter is being charged with sending sexually explicit photos to a boyfriend or girlfriend, consult with an internet sex crime lawyer as soon as possible. We can come to you anywhere in the U.S.
