Cape Cod Possession of Child Pornography Defense Attorney

The possession of child pornography is a serious charge that can see shockingly high penalties for an offender who had no tie to the offending content outside of viewing it or having it stored on their computer hard drive, whether they were aware of the existence of the content or not. Large fines and a prison sentence of up to 10 years are levied against those convicted, and the prison term is increased to a length of 10-20 years for those previously convicted of a sex crime.

Should you find yourself facing charges of possessing illegal sexual depictions of minors, it is essential that you seek skilled and knowledgeable legal representation to defend your rights and interests. Contact experienced Cape Cod possession of child pornography defense attorney James Powderly at 508-343-0676 to learn more about your legal options in this difficult time.

Affirmative Defenses against Possession Charges

For many the possession of these illegal images or videos is entirely unintentional, or the suspect was unaware of the existence of such content. With a skilled attorney on your side, you may be able to avoid a costly conviction by providing an affirmative defense against the charges. Such a defense requires that you did the following:

  • Possessed three or fewer articles of illegal pornographic content
  • Did what you could to destroy the pornography, or
  • Reported the matter to the authorities and turned over the content to them.

Clearly establishing that your involvement with illegal content was incidental or accidental will require the services of a skilled lawyer.
