Serious Crime, Devastating Penalties
Child pornography can basically be defined as possessing photographs, video
or other medium that contains minor children (under 18 years of age) being
shown nude, engaged in sexual activities or any sexually explicit materials.
It is illegal in our state, and our country for that matter, to possess,
distribute, sell, produce, solicit or promote child pornography and those
who are charged and consequently convicted will generally face extremely
devastating penalties such as:
- Long-term incarceration
- Extremely severe fines
Criminal record, most likely not eligible in the future for
expungement, which means your arrest, charges and conviction will forever be accessible
by anyone who conducts a simple background check for employment, housing
or other opportunities that arise in the future.
- A lifetime of being ordered to register as a sex offender

you know has recently been arrested, or is under investigation for child
pornography it is crucial that you immediately exercise your rights to
remain silent and hire a highly qualified Daytona Beach criminal defense
