Child Pornography Attorneys in Houston

Discreet Defense Representation in Fort Bend and Harris Counties

Child pornography and the viewing, creating, distribution and demand for it is highly illegal in many areas of the world. The United States federal government defines the legalities of distributing, manufacturing or viewing child pornography and any material that is determined to be sexually explicit of a minor can land you in some serious legal hot water. The Texas laws surrounding child pornography regard the material as completely banned regardless of obscenity and there is no right to possess or distribute the material in any manner. If you have been arrested, you have a lot on the line; prosecutors will do all that is in their power and jurisdiction to ensure that you receive the highest penalties available. The moment you are arrested, you need to work with a Houston Criminal Defense Attorney at Stornello & Correro Law Firm, PLLC.

Almost every child pornography case is handled as a serious federal offense, especially when the material has been distributed across state lines via the internet or other transportation means. If federal law somehow does not apply to your situation, the state-level prosecutors will actively pursue serious penalties against you. If you are tried and convicted of child pornography, you could potentially be facing years in prison, heavy fines, restraining orders and you will have to spend the rest of your life registering as a convicted sex offender. Even an arrest and accusation of child pornography can mean that property that you own or possess will be seized from you and used as evidence in trying you. You need to immediately work with an aggressive attorney if you are facing serious offenses of child pornography; you need to work with Stornello & Correro Law Firm, PLLC.
