Grand Rapids Child Pornography Attorney

Grand Rapids Child Pornography Defense Lawyer

If you are charged with possession of child pornography or Internet solicitation of a minor, you may have a limited amount of time in which to act. It’s important that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to plan and prepare for your defense. Punishments following a conviction for possession of child pornography are both severe and life-changing.

Criminal defense attorney Jason L. Jansma can provide an aggressive defense to those wrongly accused of a child pornography crime. As a former prosecutor, Mr. Jansma understands the charges you may be facing. Contact us today to benefit from his experience and begin crafting your defense.

You may not even be aware that you are under investigation until the police come to your door and confiscate your computer. Once proceedings begin, you could face charges in either federal or state court. Charges may include:

  • Possession of child pornography in the form of emails, pictures, or websites that you may have visited or were sent to you through the web
  • Distributing child pornography either via email or by posting images on a website
  • Participating in the creation of child pornography: these may include images altered with an image modification program
  • Persuading a child to participate in illegal sexual activity: this may include a charge for sexually abusive activity for propositioning a minor online as a result of a police sting

Keeping You Out of Prison, Off the Registry

Typical punishments for a conviction involving child pornography can range from 4 to 20 years in prison. It also includes up to $100,000 in fines for each count. If you are convicted, in certain situations, we may be able to reduce the sentence to probation.

A conviction may also land your name on the sex offender registry. Once your name is on the sex offender registry, it is nearly impossible to have your name removed. For 25 or more years, you could be fighting to rebuild your good name and image as a result of being on the registry. At Jason L. Jansma PLC, we work with the state police to keep your name off of the registry.

We offer a free initial confidential consultation to help you assess your situation. Contact our Grand Rapids, Michigan law offices to learn more about how we can help.
