Challenging Child Pornography Charges in Wisconsin

There are multiple facets to child pornography crimes in Wisconsin State legislation, and being arrest for any one of them can be considered a felony depending on the circumstances. You may be arrested for simple possession if it is found within your property or on an electronic device you primarily control. You can be arrested for distribution if someone claims to have received pornographic images of minors from you, either through intentional means or accidentally. You can also be convicted of a sex crime if you participate in the creation of child pornography in any way.

Despite the weight of the charges, there are still ways to defend yourself:

  1. Unknowing: The age of individuals in pornographic materials are seldom given to the consumer or viewer. You may be able to plead ignorance that those depicted were actually under the legal age of consent.
  2. Unlawful search: The police can be zealous in their search for evidence of child pornography crimes, sometimes entering properties or accessing online accounts without a proper warrant. If we can prove that the search and seizure of your property was unlawful, the prosecution may have to drop any evidence they have against you.
  3. Misidentification: Even the computer in your room can be accessed by others who live with you. Material found on your hard drive might have been placed there by someone else who knew that it would lead investigators off their trail and onto yours should it ever be discovered.
