Prince William County Child Pornography Lawyer

Few things can destroy your personal and professional lives as thoroughly as a conviction for a sex crime. Never is this more true than when the sex offense involves the possession, distribution, or production of child pornography.

If you’ve been charged with this crime, it’s imperative that you do everything possible to clear your name of the charges against you. By working with a Prince William County child pornography lawyer from Priale & Racine, PLLC, you can get the legal counsel you need to build the strongest defense possible.

 

Virginia Law and Child Pornography

Like most states, Virginia has zero tolerance for pornography involving minors under the age of eighteen. Any sexually explicit images or videos of minors can land you in trouble with the law extremely quickly. This applies to any medium, whether the content is digital or physical photos.

Prince William County and the rest of Virginia recognize three separate child pornography offenses:

  • Possession of child pornography is a Class 6 felony that could result in either a jail sentence of up to one year or a prison sentence of between one and five years, with a fine of up to $2,500. A second offense becomes a Class 5 felony and carries a prison sentence of between one and ten years, with a fine of up to $2,500.
  • Production of child pornography is a felony that could result in a prison sentence of between five and forty years. This covers both soliciting and enticing a minor into a pornographic production, and the penalties will heavily depend on the age of the minors involved and whether you have any prior applicable convictions on record.
  • Distribution of child pornography is a Class 3 felony and carries a prison sentence of between five and twenty years, with a fine of up to $100,000. Distribution does not necessarily mean that you were selling child pornography; it could also apply if you were simply giving it away or making it available for others.

 

The Defense You Need to Beat Child Pornography Charges

Because a child pornography conviction is also likely to result in sex offender status, you have to do everything you possibly can to beat the charges against you. Winning a dismissal is going to require more than simply claiming that you weren’t aware of the true age of the minors involved.

A Prince William child pornography attorney from our firm will be able to investigate your case and determine what the best defense to employ is. We are aggressive in defending our clients, and we’ll make certain that your presumption of innocence is respected.
