There are times in our life when we do things that we shouldn’t. We become accustomed to certain behaviors and it is hard to shake. Some of those behaviors come with a heavy social stigma. It is hard to find help when no one is willing to listen to you. Delicate situations like child pornography are high on the list of stigma.

They must meet certain requirements and the state must provide evidence for those requirements. It is our job to ensure that we have evidence that proves otherwise.
Child Pornography is defined as any kind of picture, video or any other form of material that shows a broadly defined sexual conduct by a person under the age of 18. The kind of material can be digital or hard copy and can be depicting actual sexual conduct or simulated conduct. The broad definition provides courts leeway to discern what is considered sexual or not. If you have been accused of child pornography there are many layers to the charges.
Depending on what was found, a child pornography charge can be a misdemeanor or felony charge. Regardless, if you are convicted then you will have to register for the sex offender list for the rest of your life. The number of fines ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 with prison time from 6 months to 6 years. California courts do not take these charges lightly.
