Minneapolis Child Pornography Lawyer

Defend Your Reputation & Future Today!

A charge regarding possession or dissemination of child pornography can be the most difficult and high-stakes charges to contest. If you are facing allegations related to child pornography, you cannot afford to employ a lawyer who is short of experience–there is simply too much at risk. To better your chances for a positive outcome, it is important that you contact a lawyer who has experience managing these types of criminal defense matters.

The Minnesota legislature attaches extremely severe penalties to child pornography. Not only are the prison sentences long, the social stigma attached to such a charge can damage a person’s reputation and family life.

Because of the serious nature of these charges, it is critical to retain an experienced Minneapolis criminal defense attorney who will investigate the allegations and fight for you. Brockton D. Hunter P.A. is up to the task, and will take a proactive approach to protect your rights.

Minnesota Statute 617.247 criminalizes the possession and dissemination of pornographic work that depicts sexual conduct which involves minors. The statute provides an exception for official duties of police, attorneys, court personnel, social workers etc. and specifically disallows any defense of consent.
