Child Pornography Attorney in Phoenix
Don’t Let a Sex Crime Accusation Ruin Your Life
State and federal prosecutors take child pornography allegations very seriously
and aggressively charge individuals accused of viewing, possessing, manufacturing,
or distributing child pornography. In order to avoid mandatory flat prison
time, you should work with a Phoenix criminal defense attorney who is
not afraid to go head-to-head with these prosecutors.
Attorneys Richard Suzuki and Matthew Bartz both have experience as state
prosecutors, and Mr. Suzuki is a former Assistant U.S. Attorney. They
know how prosecutors charge cases and have insight into how prosecutors
investigate and present evidence against defendants. We will use this
knowledge to aggressively defend you against your
sex crime charges.
What Are the Penalties If I Am Convicted?
Clients charged with child pornography offenses face mandatory prison time
with no possibility of early release. The length of their sentence will
depend on the amount of child pornography in their possession and/or the
type of offense they have been accused of committing. Different child
pornography crimes carry different penalties under state and federal law.
If you are convicted of possessing child pornography in Arizona, you could
face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison for each violation.
This means that you could face an additional 10 years in prison for each
pornographic image in your possession. If you are found to be in possession
of five images, for example, you could face 50 years in prison.
