Boston Child Pornography Lawyer

Child pornography is one of the most disdained crimes, and is complicated to defend for that reason. Judges and jurors may have such strong beliefs that they are blinded by what actually happened and the evidence put before them. Child pornography is also a federal and state offense, and the penalties can be extraordinarily harsh. Because of these reasons, it is imperative that you contact a professional, trusted lawyer that will do the job that others will not. The Boston child pornography lawyers of the Baez Law Firm will do just that: provide experienced defense with a legal strategy designed specifically around you and your case. You have the right to defend yourself of these allegations, and only a highly experienced lawyer with the full backing of a large law firm behind them can provide you with the quality and depth of defense that you require. Do not hesitate to contact our Boston law offices at 888-588-BAEZ today for a free case consultation.

Penalties for Child Pornography in Massachusetts

There are three types of child pornography offenses in Massachusetts: creating child pornography, spreading child pornography, and possessing child pornography. Creating child pornography requires that:

  • The defendant, with lascivious intent, either coerced, encouraged, hired, procured, used, or otherwise permitted a child to pose nude or exhibit sexual conduct;
  • The defendant knew or should have known that the child was under 18; and
  • The defendant’s intent was to create a representation or reproduction of visual material;

Creating child pornography is a felony, punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000.

As per Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 272, Section 29B, dissemination of child pornography (spreading or circulating child pornography) requires that:

  • The defendant disseminated and intended to disseminate the pornography and knew or should have known the contents of the material they were disseminating;
  • The pornography displayed a nudity or sexual acts of an underage person;
  • They spread it with lascivious (lustful) intent; and

A violation of this law carries a felony charge, serious fines, and up to 20 years in prison. Possessing or purchasing child pornography is also a felony, punishable by up to five years in prison.

Sex Offender Registry Board of Massachusetts

All people convicted of child pornography must register as sex offenders in the state of Massachusetts, which can obviously have enormous negative effects on your career prospects as well as your community relationships. And, in order to avoid having to register with the Sex Offender Registry Board of Massachusetts, you must fight the case in court and win. Taking a plea bargain will not suffice, as you will still have to register. This is yet one more reason that working with an lawyer that has a long history of trial wins is vital to your case.
