Plano Child Pornography Attorney
Possession of child pornography is a highly complex and serious offense in Texas. The minimum charge for this crime is a third degree felony, which is punishable by a $10,000 fine and 2 to 10 years in jail. The charges can be escalated to a second degree felony if it can be proved that you intended to distribute the pornographic images.
However, in order to be convicted of child pornography possession, the prosecution must prove that you had knowledge of the pornographic material. At Barbieri Law Firm, our Plano sex crime attorney has the skill to craft a high quality defense on your behalf. We can work as a team to get you the answers and guidance you need. With our team approach, you can trust that your case has been fully evaluated and all available resources are being used to your advantage.
Solicitation Of Minors Defense
Since the early days of the internet, many people have communicated electronically on chat rooms, instant messages, social media and more. Due to the relative anonymity of these online chats, some people choose this platform to solicit sex or to engage in conversations of a sexual nature. When the other person is a minor, however, a simple conversation can become a third-degree felony charge.
Police have aggressively enforced these laws for a number of years by performing sting operations. Charges for this crime can be highly frustrating to deal with because no physical sexual act or in-person contact must occur to be convicted. For this reason, it is particularly important to hire a Plano criminal defense attorney if you’re facing solicitation charges.
