Child Pornography Defense Lawyer in Dallas

Protecting Your Rights & Future

According to § 43.26 of the Texas Penal Code, possession or promotion of child pornography occurs when a person knowingly possesses any material that depicts a minor under the age of 18 engaging in sexual conduct. A second-degree felony, child pornography poses a mandatory prison sentence of 2 years and a maximum sentence of 20 years. Additionally, those convicted of a child pornography offense will be required to register as a convicted sex offender, a consequence that can have crippling repercussions on one's personal reputation, financial future, and professional career.

If you or your loved one currently stands accused of possessing or disseminating child pornography, you need to work with an experienced Dallas criminal defense attorney from the Mathur Law Offices, P.C. - call today!

Understanding Texas Child Pornography Laws

As defined by the statute, any visual depiction of a minor engaging in sexual conduct is grounds for a child pornography allegation, including any film, photography, videotape, computer file, or other images. Promotion of child pornography, which is an elevated charge that poses steeper penalties, can arise when a person possess visual material that contains six or more of the same visual depiction. Prosecutors will view this as intent to distribute child pornography, even if no evidence is found that images were disseminated.

The primary legal element and burden of proof that prosecutors must present in child pornography cases is that a person knowingly or intentionally possessed the unlawful material. Throughout our years of criminal defense experience, we have seen many cases in which an accused individual had no knowledge of the images allegedly in their possession, especially when files are found on a computer used by more than one person. Knowing that wrongful arrests and charges can occur, our legal team works diligently to help our clients facing these matters prove their side of the story.

Defendants in child pornography cases should also be aware that the criminal court process will entail deeply invasive investigations. Law enforcement agencies work relentlessly to secure any evidence that supports their case, and they will often confiscate personal property and computers when doing so. In addition to building your defense, our legal team makes it a point to ensure that law enforcement agencies are adhering to all protocol and that your rights are not infringed upon.
