While it might be common sense that it is illegal for adults to possess or distribute child pornography, it is also illegal for teenagers. It is a misdemeanor if the teen charged is 18 or younger, the teen in the photo is at least 14, and the photo/video was taken with consent. However, if the photo/video was sent to anyone it becomes a felony with a penalty of five (5) to twenty (20) years in prison, a fine up to $100,000 and time on the sex offender registry. Being charged with possessing or distributing child pornography can have long lasting collateral consequences. If your teen has been charged with possessing or distributing child pornography it is important to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
