Richmond Child Pornography Defense Attorney

Child Pornography Prosecution

With the increased file sharing accessibility of the Internet not only by home or laptop computer but also by cell phone and other wireless devices, both state and federal agencies have greatly increased their efforts to prosecute child pornography. Any production, receipt, sale, possession or distribution of child pornography is prosecuted as a sex crime. The penalties, especially in federal court, are quite severe. Whether you have already been charged or if you suspect you have been targeted by a state or federal agency for investigation, you should contact a skilled Richmond criminal defense attorney who is experienced in defending against child pornography charges.

Debra D. Corcoran, Esq. at The Law Office of Debra D. Corcoran, is a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer. She has been awarded a Masters of Laws in Litigation in 2004 and has served as a criminal defense lawyer for all serious crimes, including sexual crimes like child pornography, in both federal and state cases. The seriousness of being charged with child pornography requires an aggressive, intelligent and practical approach.

Child Pornography Laws

Because technology is changing so rapidly, the laws regarding what distributing or possessing child pornography is and under what circumstances a person can or should be charged are not as clear cut as they once seemed to be. In order to mount an effective defense against such a charge, it is important that your attorney be up to date on not only the law but the current state of technology and how evidence of such crimes is gathered or can be defended against successfully. There are several different types of cases our firm can defend you against:

  • Production of pornography with a minor
  • Sexual abuse of a minor (under 18)
  • Sharing illegal or pornographic images via cell phone ("sexting")
  • Sale of child pornography in any form

We understand the seriousness of these types of charges. When you meet with us you can be sure we will do everything necessary to defend you in and out of court and to protect your rights.

If you are charged with or suspect you are being investigated for child pornography, contact a Richmond child pornography defense attorney at our firm immediately. We will aggressively investigate, defend and resolve your case.
