Minneapolis & St. Paul Child Pornography Defense Lawyer
Child pornography is a serious and complicated crime. It is also one that tends to receive a lot of media attention and it is very aggressively prosecuted because it is a sex crime that involves a minor or multiple minors. If convicted, the consequences are very serious and the prosecution will push for the maximum sentence, such as a long prison sentence and high fines. An individual convicted of child pornography also has to register as a sex offender in Minnesota when they have committed a crime that is considered a criminal sexual act.

It is important to have an experienced attorney working with you rather than accept the charges against you so you can avoid the maximum charges.
