Penalties for Child Pornography Convictions
In an effort to stop the production of child pornography, the consequences of these crimes are severe. The possession of child pornography is also a crime which is taken seriously by local and federal agencies and can land you in prison for a significant amount of time. It is important to understand that if you are charged with more than one act involving child pornography, the consequences could be steeper. For example, you could have penalties applied to each alleged image or video in your possession.
If you are arrested for a crime involving child pornography, you could face:
- Up to 30 years in prison
- Mandatory sex offender registration
- Large fines
Child Pornography Charges in Georgia
It is illegal for any person under the age of 18 years old (considered a child in the eyes of the law) to be captured on video or photographed in a nude and sexual nature. The creation and distribution of child pornography are crimes that both local law enforcement and federal agencies take very seriously. In fact, federal agencies often have investigations and sting operations underway which have good intentions but can get innocent parties wrapped up unintentionally. Child pornography charges include possession, production, distribution, and reception.
