Los Angeles Federal Child Pornography Attorney

Experienced Defense in All Federal Courts

Child pornography is an extremely serious criminal charge. Although this may be a non-violent crime and the victim or victims may not be physically injured, the nature of the offense itself is such that media attention is likely and criminal penalties will be extremely harsh. Child pornography is illegal both under state and federal law, although a defendant will often face more severe penalties for a conviction in federal court.

At Okabe & Haushalter, we have the experience and qualifications to provide you with the aggressive legal representation that you need in either state or federal court. When you work with a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer from our firm, you will have the benefit of our expertise in this particular area as well as our strong dedication to protecting our clients’ rights and freedom.

State vs. Federal Charges

Depending upon the particular case, a defendant may face child pornography charges in either state or federal court. In California, child pornography is covered under the state’s obscenity laws. Distributing child pornography is a felony offense under state law, and it is also illegal to possess or produce any type of child pornography or depiction of a minor (a child under 18 years of age) in any sexual act.

U.S. federal laws prohibit the interstate distribution of child pornography as well as the distribution or possession of child pornography on federal property. Under federal law, child pornography is defined as “any visual depiction” of a minor engaging in “sexually explicit conduct”. This may include actual intercourse or any sexual activity, as well as exhibition of the minor’s genitalia. For more information, see 18 U.S.C. Chapter 10, “Sexual Exploitation and Other Abuse of Children”.

Do not wait to consult a Okabe & Haushalter if you are facing state or federal charges of this serious offense. You need someone on your side to defend your rights immediately – and wasting time or waiting to consult a lawyer will only harm your chances of reaching a positive case outcome.
