Consequences of Distributing Child Porn in Maryland

Distribution of child pornography is a serious criminal allegation that creates an immediate social stigma. Guilt is often presumed in the court of public opinion. However, those presumptions are only the start of the penalties. Prison sentences, fines, and possible lifetime supervision and sex offender registration are possible outcomes as well. Experienced legal counsel at your side is paramount.

I am attorney Charles L. Waechter. I established my law office to provide aggressive representation for Maryland residents facing serious charges of distribution of child pornography. While I am a dedicated advocate, I am also candid and honest with my clients regarding possible outcomes. Over my 30-plus years of experience, I have earned a national reputation for my achievements in my handling of complex criminal defense cases.

Arrested for Distributing Child Porn? Attorney Charles L. Waechter Can Help.

Conviction of child pornography distribution carries grave consequences even if you have a clean criminal record. Whether you are tried in state or federal court, you face 20 years in prison. Extenuating circumstances that influence the severity of a sentence involve the number of pornographic images, the acts conveyed on the pictures and the ages of the children.

Being released from prison hardly releases you from punishment. Lifetime supervision and sex offender registration is common for those convicted.

While I take a proactive approach in protecting your rights and pursuing the best outcome, I encourage all my clients to seek immediate treatment and counseling, if necessary. It can make a difference if you admit to having a problem and cooperate with law enforcement as I negotiate a downward departure or variance from sentencing guidelines. Please know that if a trial will provide the best outcome, I will build a strong defense on your behalf for litigation.
