Child pornography convictions can mean a lifetime of consequences

In our country, there are certain criminal convictions that tend to carry with them a certain stigma. This stigma, once it is attached to someone, can be quite hard -- if not impossible -- to shake off. 

Child pornography convictions fall under this category. Not only are the state laws in Florida and the federal laws rather strict, the penalties associated with possessing, manufacturing or distributing child pornography are ones that will continue to haunt a person for years, if not his or her entire life. 

In looking at why a child pornography conviction is different than some other types of crimes, one main difference is the requirement to register as a sexual offender or sexual predator. Unlike, let us say, a drunk driving conviction, those convicted of certain sex offenses must register as a sex offender -- in many cases -- for the rest of their lives. This means a 30-year-old mistake can continue to negatively impact someone's chances for employment years and years after the conviction. It can even dictate where someone can or cannot live. 

This is why at Lindsey & Ferry, P.A., we tell people to reach out to an attorney as soon as they are contacted by law enforcement. In fact, even if contact has not been made yet, but there is reason to believe that someone may be approached or investigated, it is never to early too call our firm. This way, we can get right to work, examining every possible defense.
