Child Pornography Lawyer in Minneapolis, Minnesota

Accused of Possessing Child Pornography? Our Firm Is Available 24/7

Being charged with possession of child pornography places a person on the front line, leaving them vulnerable to a number of accusations and implications, which can be life-altering and damaging to one’s reputation. Simply being charged, however, does not mean that it is the end of the line. The government has the burden of proving the accusations made against you are valid, and you have the right to challenge their case.

You must understand that being charged with any type of sex crime, especially one as serious as possession of child pornography, does not mean that all hope is lost. On the contrary, the Minneapolis sex crime lawyers at Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. can fight to protect your legal rights, ethically and with integrity. We have been fighting to protect our clients' rights and freedom since 1983.

The Penalties for Child Pornography Crimes

If you or someone you love has been charged with distribution or production of child pornography in Minnesota, be aware that these are very serious allegations which carry life-altering penalties and harsh sentencing guidelines. Whether you are under investigation or have already been charged, working with a proven defense firm should be your top priority.

For a first conviction, the defendant could face the following:

For distributing child pornography, the penalties may include:

  • Up to 7 years of imprisonment
  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Mandatory sex offender registration

Distribution of Child Pornography

Many child pornography cases involve the use of the internet and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file-sharing programs. By default, many of these programs create folders where files can be uploaded and downloaded to a user’s computer, sometimes without their knowledge and sometimes without a knowledge of what the files contain. In many cases involving P2P programs, state and federal prosecutors charge defendants with distribution of child pornography in addition to possession.

In most cases, the evidence is not always cut and dry. Prosecutors may think they can get through litigation by inundating courtrooms with an abundance of evidence, such as a computer, cell phone, or hard drive. Yet, there are so many ways that illicit material can be transmitted to computers—downloading the wrong file or unknowingly opening an email that had a bad link or attachment.
