Federal child pornography cases involve mandatory minimum sentences and have very strict guidelines regulating the defenses that can be used in possession, distribution and production cases. As a result, attacking the evidence gather by the FBI or other federal law enforcement relating to a Washington, DC federal child pornography case is often the best way to defeat a charge. In order to successfully defend a federal child pornography charge you need an attorney who has experience in a number of areas including:
* Federal Court: Because child pornography cases are prosecuted in federal court, you need a defense attorney who is comfortable with federal court procedures, timelines and the rules regarding the presentation of evidence.
* Technology: Most Washington DC child pornography cases involve the use of both computers and the internet as both are often used in possession, distribution and/or production of the material in question.
Consequences of Federal Child Pornography Cases
As mentioned before, Washington DC Child Pornography cases are subject to federal sentencing guidelines, meaning that if you are convicted of possession, distribution or production of child pornography there is very little your attorney, the judge or jury can do to affect the sentence you will receive. Currently the mandatory minimum sentence is 5 years imprisonment per child pornography related count. That time can quickly multiply in cases where a client is accused of possession of multiple images or videos. Because of the serious nature of these charges, getting talented representation is of the utmost importance.
