Child Pornography

Child Pornography Criminal Defense in Phoenix

Child pornography relates to producing, distributing or possessing pornographic images or videos of a person under the age of 18. As the state of Arizona considers crimes against children especially heinous, the penalties for being convicted of child pornography can be extremely harsh. If the child is under 15 years old, the sentence can range from 10-24 years per count, with the counts running consecutively. The crime also falls under the “Dangerous Crimes Against Children” category, meaning you are required to serve the entire sentence without the possibility of parole. This can potentially turn a guilty verdict into a life sentence. When you get released from prison, you will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life, as well as be restricted from contacting anyone under 18 years old without express permission from your parole officer, even your own children.

Trent handled cases for me on two different occasions involving tickets for seat belt violations in commercial vehicles. Very happy with results. All charges dismissed. One case in Flagstaff and one case in Gilbert Court. KF
