Florida Child Pornography Distribution & Transmission Defense Attorneys
Florida Sex Crimes Defense Lawyers
Distributing and transmitting child pornography is viewed as one of the most severe offenses in Florida. It is highly important that if you are contacted by authorities, taken into custody or if a warrant has been issued to search your premises that you do not speak to law enforcement without an attorney present. Most cases start with a law officer contacting the accused and setting up a voluntary interview. More often than not people speak to the agents or officers without a lawyer, which can be a huge mistake. Don’t let fear or ignorance bully you out of your rights. If you or a loved one has been accused of distributing or transmitting child pornography, contact the Florida Sex Crimes Defense Lawyers right away for a complimentary and completely confidential consultation.
Elements of the crime
The transmission or distribution of child pornography falls under the Florida statute promoting a sexual performance by a child. The elements to validate these cases are the following:
- The accused produced, directed, disbursed or advertised any visual representation available to be witnessed by spectators
- The visual representation depicted some type of sexual activity by a child under the age of 18 years old
- The accused knew what the visual representation of the child was and still distributed it
To prove these elements expert testimony is often needed. The maximum prison time for this crime is 15 years and registration as a sexual offender, predator or both.
