Atlanta Child Pornography Attorney

Fighting for Georgia Residents for Over Two Decades

In Georgia, one of the most damaging areas of the criminal justice system is that of sex crimes, particularly those involving children. The laws defining and punishing child pornography are complex. Individuals who are facing child pornography charges are likely overwhelmed and concerned about the security of their future and their ability to fight against such serious charges.

Child pornography investigations often involve forensic scientists, specialized technology, and a great deal of time and patience.

Unfortunately, innocent individuals who are being investigated often find themselves subject to social stigma, damaged relationships, and complications with professional and educational pursuits.

Child Pornography Crimes in Georgia

Several instances may result in charges of child pornography, including:
  • Sexual exploitation of children
  • Online chatting between adults and minors
  • “Sexting” between adults and minors
  • Online file sharing
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Producing or distributing child pornography

While these are the most common instances classified as child pornography crimes, there are many variables to Georgia law, which may alter the charges. Georgia code states that it is illegal for anyone to possess, produce, or distribute any material depicting minors engaged in sexual behaviors or simulating sexual behaviors.

This includes photographs, videos, online files, and other online and print materials. Because this section of the law is so broad, there are many activities and behaviors that are classified as child pornography, well beyond the scope of the items listed above.

Penalties for Child Pornography

Georgia law is very strict regarding child pornography charges and is equally strict with administering penalties for those who are convicted. While the penalties for child pornography charges may vary depending on the exact nature of the charges, the most common penalties include:

  • Fines - fines for a conviction of child pornography can range from a few hundred dollars up to $100,000.

  • Prison - a prison sentence for child pornography charges can range from five years to as much as 20 years, depending on the exact nature of the charges.

  • Sex Offender Registry - one of the most detrimental penalties that result from a conviction of child pornography is mandatory registration as a sex offender. A permanent record for those convicted of sex crimes can have a devastating effect on the defendant’s life, including their ability to secure employment, move where they want, or even travel. Authorities may administer these charges individually or in combination with one another or other penalties.
