When someone is charged with an offense involving child pornography, the public’s strong emotional response to even the words themselves can result in immediate prejudice and a rush to judgment. Unless successfully defended, the consequences of a conviction for offenses involving child pornography are extremely harsh. These consequences can include very lengthy confinement periods and punitive discharges from the military. In addition, those convicted of an offense involving child pornography will be required to register as a sex offender, which carries a tremendously negative social stigma.
