Child Pornography is generally defined as “the visual depiction by film, picture, computer image or other means of an identifiable minor engaged in sexually explicit or lewd conduct”.
Child pornography can be charged either as a federal offense or a state offense. Typically prosecutors will assess if the images were transmitted over state lines via the internet.
When a child pornography charge involves images created, manipulated or stored on a computer, your lawyers must have considerable computer expertise and experience in the defense of cybercrimes as well as sex crimes. It is also important to have a federal attorney on your team in the event that the FBI chooses to pursue charges against you.
