Child Pornography

An accusation of possession or production and distribution of child pornography can ruin your reputation and have a serious impact on your life. Any sex crime that has to do with children is considered reprehensible by our society, and one of the many penalties for a child pornography charge is registration on the Minnesota predatory offender registry. This affects your ability to get a job, find a place to live and apply for school.In addition, you may be facing time in prison and hefty fines, up to five years for possession of child pornography with a fine of up to $5,000 and up to seven years in prison for distribution of child pornography with a fine of up to $10,000.

At Villaume & Schiek, P.A., our attorneys routinely fight to protect the rights of individuals charged with possession or distribution of child pornography. We consult with computer forensic experts to trace how the pictures may have gotten onto your computer, and who may have had access to your computer directly, or indirectly.
