Protect Your Future and Let Us Help You Navigate The Legal System Complexity
With both the internet and social media’s ever growing popularity, it has become easier than ever to post, share, upload and download images, video and data, as well as access them through smartphones, laptops and tablets. As much as having content readily available can be resourceful, there are unfortunate cases where it can violate the law and lead to cases of child exploitation.
The distribution, transmission, or possession of materials where a minor is recorded, filmed, or photographed in a sexually explicit manner or conduct can result in serious charges. In Arizona, the law provides mandatory sentencing and if convicted, the defendant’s punishment depends on the victim’s age and whether there is an existing criminal record.
Defining Child Pornography
According to federal law, child pornography is any “visual depiction” of a minor engaging in “sexually explicit conduct.” Visual depictions include photographs, videos, or other types of images. Child pornography offenses carry significant penalties. Anyone who is being investigated for child pornography should immediately consult with a child pornography attorney.
Need To Know About A.R.S. 13-3553
A.R.S. §13-3553 defines the crime of sexual exploitation as “Distributing, transporting, exhibiting, receiving, selling, purchasing, electronically transmitting, possessing or exchanging any visual depiction in which a minor is engaged in exploitive exhibition or other sexual conduct.”
Under A.R.S. §13-705, each image of child pornography carries a mandatory prison sentence of 10-24 years. This is a mandatory sentence that cannot be reduced by the Court. This sentence is also “flat” time meaning that you are not eligible for early release from prison.
