Are You The Subject Of A Pornography Investigation?

Florida Child Pornography Convictions Have Severe Consequences

Whether you are under investigation or have already been arrested, you need to take quick action to protect your rights. Step one is putting the experience and resources of O'Brien Hatfield, PA, on your side.

The sexual exploitation and other abuses of children include the possession, production and distribution of child pornography. These charges may be pursued in Florida or at the federal level. Federal penalties are the harshest and may include a prison term between five and 50 years, depending on the nature of the specific offense.

Even if you are not convicted, the charges alone can wreak havoc on your life, dragging your reputation through the mud and making future background checks a nightmare for you and your family. Call 813-228-6989 for a free, confidential consultation with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

You Will Be A Prime Target

Police and federal agents take child pornography offenses very seriously. If you are suspected of a child pornography-related act such as sharing files you have downloaded, you may be investigated by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. In addition to a prison sentence, a conviction will result in you being required to register as a sex offender, branding you for life as a sexual predator.

If you are charged with possession, creation or distribution of child pornography, we will seek the most appropriate and promising defense strategies on your behalf. You may have grounds to file a civil claim of malicious prosecution if you were charged with a crime you did not commit for the sole purpose of destroying your reputation.
