Child Pornography Penalties in Rhode Island
Child pornography charges generally involve the accusation that someone
knowingly possessed illicit sexual material featuring minors. Charges
can also relate to distributing such materials or actually producing or
replicating it, either physically or digitally. A single conviction of
any of these sex crimes can absolutely destroy your future chances of
a normal life as your reputation is reduced to ribbons and others view
you in a negative light, regardless if your charges were accurate or not.
Penalties for child pornography crimes may include:
- 15 years in state or federal prison
- $5,000 or more in fines
- Restitution paid to potential alleged victims
- Sex offender registration (permanent)
Defensive Arguments Thoroughly Explored on Your Behalf
When you retain the services of Providence Sex Crimes Attorney Jason Knight,
you will be putting a professional in charge of your defense. With years
of experience and a record of successful
case results and verdicts, our firm has developed a strong reputation as being capable
of providing solid defensive cases for our clients.
If you have been accused of child pornography possession, some of the defenses
we may be able to use include:
Illegal search: Not much the prosecution brings can hold up in court if your possessions
or digital files were raided by the police without a valid warrant, or
a valid reason to even request a warrant.
Misunderstanding: In some illicit materials, the age of the people depicted is not clear
to others, or is even falsely advertised as 18 or older.
Misplacement: It can be particularly hard to prove that the materials discovered are
actually your property, especially in shared residences or on a digital
hard drive. It is not uncommon for pornographic files to be downloaded
invisibly with other files, unbeknownst to the downloader.
Inaccurate: Materials that law enforcement describes as child pornography might not
be sexual to you at all, but instead represent a form of artwork. If the
material is not illicit, it should not be considered a crime.
When a total dismissal of your charges is not possible, we can push for
a reduction of your sentence. There have been numerous recent cases our
law firm has taken on in which Attorney Knight was able to minimize the
penalties and close the case
without mandatory sex offender registration.
