Unfortunately, Maryland child pornography cases can be complicated and difficult to defend. The government generally does not bring charges until they have conducted a lengthy investigation and are confident that they have sufficient evidence of the crime to succeed at trial. Client’s facing federal child pornography charges may be charged with one or more of the following crimes:
* Possession of child pornography
* Distribution of child pornography
* Production of child pornography
Careful review of the government’s evidence against you in your Maryland child pornography case and utilization of evidence and law by your attorney often means the difference between moving on with your life and spending a significant period of your life behind bars.
Consequences in Federal Child Pornography Cases
In addition to the social issues that may arise as a result of a federal investigation or Maryland child pornography charge, individuals face stiff fines and mandatory sentences. For most Maryland child pornography charges the mandatory minimum sentence is 5 years imprisonment per count. That time can quickly add up if you are facing more than one charge and most Maryland child pornography cases involve dozens if not hundreds of charges.
If you are convicted of a federal child pornography charge in Maryland, after you are released from prison you will be forced comply with Maryland’s sex offender registration requirements. Unfortunately this means that your name and personal information will be available to the public via the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services’ website. As a result of the Maryland child pornography conviction you will also be limited in where you can live and may face a host of employment limitations as well.
