CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

We'll protect you from a Child Pornography charge in Colorado

It is widely known that pornography is protected under the First Amendment. However, if a child is involved, the First Amendment protection does not withstand.

The United States law defines child pornography as any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a minor. These depictions can include photographs, videos, and digital or computer-generated images. The depictions can also include undeveloped film, undeveloped videotape, and electronically stored data that can be converted into a visual image of child pornography. Therefore, the argument that an image hasn’t been developed and therefore cannot be considered child pornography is not valid in court.

If a parent or legal guardian takes photos or videos of his or her child and attempts to sell, buy, or transfer these photos or videos, the parent can be charged with child pornography. In Colorado and all across the United States, putting your child in a sexual position with the intention of making a profit is not allowed.

Child Pornography Charges in Colorado

The punishments for child pornography are not to be taken lightly. A first time offender will typically have to serve five to 20 years in prison. However, these charges can be more severe in the case where the photos are violent, sadistic, or masochistic in nature.

Additionally, if the child was sexually abused, the charge will also be more severe.

If you have been charged with child pornography or another sex crime, you need someone who will defend you and your reputation aggressively, so that you do not lose your life to a prison cell.
