Illegal Pornography Charges

The Seriousness of Sex Crimes Against Children — Get the Defense You Need Now
If you have been arrested or are under investigation for illegal pornography charges, it is critical to speak with a Salt Lake City criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Many defendants make the mistake of speaking to law enforcement without an attorney. Frequently, they do not understand the level of danger they face and the seriousness of the charges against them.
If you are caught with illegal pictures on your computer, especially those of minors, you can be charged with a separate crime for each image you possess. Moreover, the prosecution may claim that completely innocent images are pornographic in nature.
Innocent people have been convicted on child pornography charges and have served time in jail. Most recently in the news, we have heard of teenagers who send suggestive images of themselves via text message. These acts, known as “sexting,” are increasingly becoming the focus of Internet sex crime prosecutions.
