Child Pornography Attorney in Chattanooga, TN
Serious Defense for Charges of Federal Criminal Activity
Child pornography is a
sex crime that is considered a federal offense, meaning the accused individual can
be prosecuted by federal investigators and attorneys. Possession or distribution
of child pornography is considered an extremely serious charge in federal
court, with weighty penalties on conviction. Federal statues define what
the elements of child pornography are and what the punishments could before
conviction of this crime.
Under 18 USC § 2252A, any individual who mails, ships, or transports
child pornography by use of interstate or foreign commerce, including
computer - or any individual who receives or distributes such material
- has committed a federal crime. Punishment is mandatory upon conviction
and often requires incarceration for many years. It is crucial to be proactive
if you have been charged with this crime or have reason to believe you
will be charged in the future.
This is an evolving area of the law and recent federal decisions show how
important it is to have an experienced
