Florida treats all child pornography offenses very seriously. The effects of child pornography charges can have a devastating effect on the accused. However, it is possible to lessen the effect of such charges by proving that the accused deserves to obtain a reduced sentence.
Orlando defense lawyer Jonathan Rose can help the accused reduce the effects of child pornography charges through deconstructing sentencing guidelines. Not all crimes should be punished with the same charges and penalties because not all crimes are equally severe. It is only fair to use deconstructing sentencing guidelines to prove that some child pornography charges deserve to be decreased or even dropped or dismissed due to lack of proof.
Forms of Child Pornography Offenses
There are four types of child pornography offenses. Ranging from least to most severe, these relate to the:
- every person who accesses child pornography
- every person who is in the possession of child pornography
- every person who distributes or has the intent to distribute child pornography
- Making of child pornography:
- every person who participates in the making of child pornography
To be charged with a crime related to child pornography, an individual must knowingly offend. Accidentally stumbling upon child pornography is not sufficient to be convicted of a crime.
It is important to note that certain aggravating factors, such as perpetrating the offense with the intent to make a financial profit, increase the severity of the offense and therefore of the sentence.
