Protect your reputation & life from child pornography prosecution.

Maryland Child Pornography Defense Attorneys for Tough Cases

I've been defending Child Pornography cases for 30 years on the state and federal levels. When your life, freedom, and livelihood are being threatened, you need a serious trial team!

Federal and State prosecutions for child pornography are a very "different" niche in the law. If you are being prosecuted or you have been notified of an investigation, please call counsel immediately. You need someone who is extremely experienced in this area of the law. There are countless pitfalls and potential impediments. Law enforcement, when investigating a matter will seek to put you in the general category of someone who is guilty.  It takes a qualified eye and someone with the experience to prevent the government from walking all over you. 

  • Federal & State Distribution and/ or possession of Child Pornography: Many times Child pornography cases begin on the state level and are referred to the Justice Department for prosecution.  You could face a very high federal prison sentence based on the federal sentencing guidelines. When released potential lifetime supervision and registration as a sex offender could occur.   Even if you have no prior criminal record the results could be devastating unless you are protected. 
  • Soliciting of a minor: Stae and Federal law enforcement agents seek to entrap individuals while posing as a minor or someone looking for sex. There are countless forums online where this occurs. If you were involved in even a "minor" conversation online, it could lead to major consequences. 
  • Soliciting  Prostitution: One of the oldest crimes known is solicitation or "Assignation" of a prostitute. First-time offenders usually do not face major jail time, but the embarrassment and other consequences can be devastating.  We can help you obtain an outcome that can change the direction of many of these potential issues.
  • Child Sexual Abuse & Physical Abuse. Maryland law does in fact allow "reasonable corporal punishment" under certain circumstances. The defense to most of these cases is that the "hitting or striking" was not done in an "angry" fashion, but merely for reasonable discipline. It's a fine line, but the words you speak to a police office or a detective can be fatal. 

Keep your constitutionally granted legal rights while fighting accusations of child pornography possession and/or distribution with the help of one of the preeminent defense attorneys in Maryland, Jim Crawford & his team.
