Florida’s Child Pornography Statutes

Under §847.001(3), child pornography is defined as any image that depicts a minor engaged in sexual conduct. Sexual conduct refers to any type of sexual activity including simulated or actual sexual intercourse, or any act or conduct which simulates or constituted sexual battery.

The following child pornography offenses are prohibited under Florida law:

  • Possession
  • Distribution
  • Transmission
  • Manufacturing

The above offenses are covered under Florida Statutes 847.0135, 847.0138, and 827.071, and are third degree felonies, punishable by a term of imprisonment not to exceed 5 years, and a fine not to exceed $5,000. Further, the crimes of computer pornography (F.S. 847.0135), and transmission of child pornography by an electronic device/equipment (F.S. 847.0137) require sex offender registration.

Call Herman Law, P.A. for an Aggressive, Specialized Defense

It is not unusual for people to accidentally or unknowingly download child pornography, especially when minors are made to look like adults. In other cases, the defendant had no involvement in the crime, but someone else downloaded or transmitted the information from the defendant’s personal computer. In every case, defending a child porn case requires a skilled and hard-hitting defense.

If you are facing child pornography charges, contact a West Palm Beach criminal lawyer from Herman Law, P.A. As a former prosecutor, Attorney Herman has great insight into prosecution and defense tactics, and this knowledge can prove invaluable when developing your defense strategy.

When you choose our firm, we will work diligently to expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and to pursue dropped charges, a dismissal or an acquittal.
