Child Pornography

There is nothing more devastating to any person than being falsely accused of a child pornography offense. Alabama law differentiates between mere possession, possession with intent to distribute, and production/manufacturing. 

Simple possession of "obscene matter" involving a minor child is still a very serious offense. Like most sex offense crimes, possession of child pornography is a felony offense. If convicted, a defendant can expect to serve a lengthy prison term and will be subject to Registration and Notification requirements for the remainder of his or her life. 

Possession of obscene matter involving a child, with the intent to distribute that obscene matter is more serious. This offense is a Class B felony, with a range of punishment of 2 to 20 years if convicted. Registration and Notification are mandatory.

Finally, Production of obscene matter containing visual depiction of a person under 17 years of age is a class A felony. If convicted, a defendant will be sentenced anywhere from 10 to 99 years in State prison. If ever released, he or she will be required to abide by Registration and Notification requirements for the remainder of his or her life. If you or a loved one has been wrongly accused a child pornography offense, call (251) 301-0362. Your freedom may depend on it.
