Mandatory Minimum Sentences In Federal Court

Prosecutors treat child pornography offenses seriously, often leveling harsh penalties against those who are convicted. Outside of consequences such as fines, community service and inclusion on the Sex Offender Registry, most offenses carry significant minimum incarceration.

  • Possession of child pornography: While there is no required minimum sentence, prosecutors will often seek the maximum penalties allowable.
  • Five year minimums: Most other child pornography charges carry a five-year mandatory minimum prison sentence. These charges can include receipt, distribution, possession with intent to distribute, possession with intent to sell, transportation or the production of child pornography.

Against these serious charges, you need an aggressive, effective defense attorney. We have years of experience defending clients against various internet crimes, and we understand the tenacious opposition we face from federal prosecutors.
