Sarasota Child Pornography Lawyer

Quality Legal Representation for Individuals Facing Child Porn Charges

Florida Statutes § 827.071 prohibits certain acts involving depictions of minors engaged in sexual conduct. This statute delineates a spectrum of actions deemed unlawful. Offenses outlined within this statute can result in severe legal ramifications, often constituting felony charges under Florida law.

Understanding the elements constituting an offense is essential, as it empowers individuals to grasp the prosecution's burden of proof and enables them to mount a robust defense. However, merely recognizing the prohibited acts is insufficient. Seeking the guidance of a seasoned Sarasota child pornography attorney is indispensable to navigating the complexities of the legal system. A lawyer can meticulously analyze evidence, conduct thorough investigations, and craft a strategic defense.

At the Law Offices of Eric Reisinger, P.A., we recognize the gravity of child pornography charges.

Understanding the Charges and Penalties for Child Pornography

Child pornography involves the exploitation of children through visual depictions of them engaged in sexual conduct, encompassing a range of prohibited acts. Sexual conduct, as defined within Section 827.071, includes sexual intercourse, deviate sexual intercourse, masturbation, lewd exhibition of genitals, physical contact with genitals to arouse or gratify sexual desires, and conduct constituting sexual battery. The statute pertains to acts committed against minors—those under 18 years of age.

The types of offenses covered by the statute include the following:

  • Using a child in a sexual performance, whether the entire performance or only a part of it contains depictions of a minor engaged in sexual conduct.
  • Promoting a sexual performance by a minor, which encompasses producing, directing, or promoting any visual representation depicting a child engaged in sexual conduct.
  • Possessing child pornography with the intent to promote it.
  • Knowingly possessing or viewing child pornography.

Potential Penalties and Consequences

Individuals convicted of using a child in a sexual performance, promoting a sexual performance, or possessing child pornography with intent to promote face second-degree felony charges, with penalties including imprisonment for up to 15 years and/or fines of up to $10,000.

Knowingly possessing or viewing child pornography carries a third-degree felony charge, punishable by imprisonment for up to 5 years and/or fines of up to $5,000.

Additionally, a conviction under this statute may require individuals to register as sex offenders, further impacting their personal and professional lives.

Protecting Your Rights in Child Pornography Cases

Individuals possess certain fundamental rights protected by the Constitution in any criminal case. These rights include the right to due process, a fair trial, the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, and protection against unlawful searches and seizures. Familiarizing yourself with these rights is essential for asserting them effectively throughout the legal process.

Interacting with law enforcement can be intimidating, especially when facing criminal allegations. Remain calm, cooperative, and respectful during encounters with police officers. At the same time, refrain from answering questions that may incriminate you.

Seeking legal counsel is essential for protecting your rights and building a robust defense strategy. A defense attorney can assess your case, advise you on practical courses of action, and work tirelessly to safeguard your rights and pursue a favorable outcome.
