Internet Pornography



Los Angeles Internet Pornography Lawyer

Internet pornography is covered by both California state law and by federal law and of you are facing internet pornography charges either under state or federal law, our criminal attorneys can and will help you.

Internet pornography is illegal if it’s either obscene or exploits children. Obscenity is defined as being patently offensive, appealing to the prurient interest, and lacking serious literary, scientific, artistic, or political value. This language can be ambiguous and ultimately the question of obscenity is one for the jury. For this reason, our sex crime lawyers are the ones for you, because we develop a rapport with the jurors and we know how the prosecutors think and are familiar with the strategies they use. All our knowledge is used to your advantage.

As to exploitation of a minor, California law states that, every person who knowingly possesses or controls any data, or image, including, but not limited to, any film, filmstrip, photograph, negative, slide, photocopy, videotape, video laser disc, computer hardware, computer software, computer floppy disc, data storage media, CD-ROM, in which the production involves someone under the age of 18 years old being engaged in sexual conduct, can be charged with internet child pornography and punished by imprisonment in the county jail for up to one year, or by a fine not exceeding two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500), or by both the fine and imprisonment.

The penalties for a conviction of internet pornography under federal law are way more harsh and severe than state law.

If you are convicted of internet pornography, the conviction becomes part of your permanent record and excessive fines and imprisonment will be imposed. This is why it is vital and essential to obtain an experienced, skilled, and aggressive defense attorney to fight on your behalf.
