Tucson Defense of Child Pornography Charges
In recent years, there have been increased efforts made by prosecutors and law enforcement to prosecute allegations related to child pornography. In some cases, an investigation into these allegations will involve an officer posing as a purveyor of child pornography who will enter a chat room and see if someone is interested in receiving child pornography or supplying it through a zip file or file sharing format.
In other cases, these pornographic images have file markers attached to them that alert law enforcement when they are sent across the Internet. The penalties attached to supplying, receiving or possessing child pornography are extremely significant. In many instances, the actions of the government can result in charges of individuals who would otherwise not participate in such activities.
