POSSESSION OF PORNOGRAPHY

Possession of pornography that depicts a minor, whether in words or pictures, can be a state or federal crime. In fact, this is one of the fastest growing areas of federal crime enforcement today. When it comes to child pornography, it doesn’t matter if the person downloaded the content, owned a magazine depicting the content or simply viewed it on a website. No matter what, it is a crime. These cases often carry a mandatory minimum prison sentence in Florida. If you have passed the content to anyone else, the charges may even increase to child pornography trafficking and you will need to seek the help of a Tampa criminal Lawyer.

Defending yourself in a federal child pornography case requires the help of an experienced Tampa criminal lawyer. Evidence in these cases is often procured using illegal search and seizure, making it inadmissible in the courtroom as evidence. Also, if it can be shown that a person has acquired child pornography on their computer on accident while seeking to gather legal pornography, it is much harder to convict, although still illegal.
