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. Our team also has experience representing federal offenses involving child pornography. We will use this knowledge to aggressively defend you against your sex crime charges.

What Are the Penalties for Child Pornography?

Clients charged with child pornography offenses face a conviction and mandatory prison time with no possibility of early release. The length of their sentence and whether it will be charged as a misdemeanor or felony 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.

Our Phoenix sex crime lawyers defend clients against all types of child pornography charges:

  • Viewing child pornography / minors engaged in sexual acts
  • Possessing child pornography
  • Manufacturing child pornography
  • Recording, filing, or photographing child pornography
  • Transporting, distributing, or transmitting child pornography

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.

Sex Offender Registry

In addition to the criminal penalties, you may be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. Being on this list means that your personal information will be available to the public, including your name, address, photo, and convicted offense.

Being listed on the registry is life-altering, and can limit your ability to find housing and jobs. It is important that you work with an experienced attorney who can help you minimize the damage that a charge can have on your life.

Defenses to State & Federal Child Pornography Charges

In sexual exploitation of a minor / child pornography cases, the prosecution must prove that the person engaging in sexual conduct or exhibiting him or herself was under 18 years of age. In many cases, it is difficult to prove how old the child in the picture or video is. If the actual victim is not on hand and the picture is questionable, your charges may be dropped.

When necessary, we will bring experts in to testify about how old they believe the alleged child is. Act now. We offer free consultations to English- and Spanish-speaking clients.
