Child Pornography Lawyer in Los Angeles
If you are facing a Child Pornography related charge in the Los Angeles federal court system you must act swiftly and decisively in retaining an experienced federal criminal defense attorney. Federal prosecutors and judges are particularly harsh when it comes to these types of offenses. In many cases, an experienced federal attorney can act early on in the proceedings to guard against excessive penalties later on down the line.
California Penal code section 311.11 makes the possession of child pornography illegal and may be charged in state court as well as federal court. Although adult pornography is protected by under the 1st Amendment free speech, pornography depicting children is completely illegal.
In these types of cases, the prosecution has the burden of proving that you actually knew that you were in possession of the unlawful images depicting children in a pornographic matter and that the images were not digitally created.
With child pornography charges, the number of images does not increase the counts; regardless of the number it will be one criminal violation.
When it comes to punishment in federal sex crime cases, there are many factors that are considered as to whether a particular person will be sent to federal prison. The courts will look at a person’s prior criminal record and the facts of the current case in deciding what they believe are the appropriate sanctions. The most important thing a person facing a serious crime can do is hire an attorney that has defended many federal crimes successfully. They will know what steps to take and make the decisions that are right for a particular client.
