Understanding Child Pornography Promotion & Possession Charges

An individual can be charged with either possession or promotion of child pornography. These charges can be applied to any form of medium, including printed pictures, videos, digital files, etc. If an individual has pornographic material involving minors in their home or on their computer or phone, they can be charged with possession. Promotion of child pornography covers a larger range of activity or involvement.

“Promotion” of child pornography entails any of the following:

  • Manufacturing
  • Issuing
  • Giving
  • Selling
  • Mailing

The penalties if convicted of either promotion or possession of are incredibly severe. Not only do convicted individuals face jail-time, but they also must register as a sex offender for the rest of their life. Registering as a sex offender can affect your employment, where you can live, and your rights.

The legal consequences of your case depend on the specific charges you face:

  • Possession charges are considered a 3rd degree felony and are given a prison sentence between 2-10 years and fines up to $10,000.
  • Promotion charges are considered a 2nd degree felony and are given a prison sentence between 2-20 years and fines up to $10,000.

Unfortunately, many kids don’t realize that they can also be facing child pornography charges for sending sexually explicit pictures of themselves or pictures of fellow classmates.
