Aggressive Penalties for Child Pornography Conviction

If you are convicted of simple possession of child pornography at the federal level, you will be facing a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison with no probation, no parole and no supervised release. If you are convicted of producing, transmitting or profiting from child pornography, the penalties can be exponentially worse.

At the state level, convictions will still result in prison time, but you may be eligible for probation depending on your prior record. At the state level, you will still be required to register with the sex offender registry for life in accordance with Megan’s law.

At the federal level, the law offices of Robert J. DeGroot has extensive experience in handling matters involving printed child pornography, child pornography distribution, Internet child pornography, interstate travel and child luring cases.
