Even once you have completed a prison sentence for a child pornography conviction, the consequences of a conviction can likely last for the rest of your life. In Pennsylvania, individuals convicted of child pornography offenses will usually be required to register as sex offenders under the state’s sex offender registration statute. Sex offender registration carries a serious social stigma that can make it difficult for you to secure housing, find a job, or apply for entry to educational programs. Registration can also impose restrictions on your personal life, such as where you may live, what kinds of jobs you may hold, or your ability to access social media or the internet. Registration requirements can be onerous, and failure to comply can lead to further criminal convictions. 

Our attorneys have a deep knowledge of Pennsylvania’s child pornography and sex crimes laws, and we are prepared to fight to keep you from being punished harshly under these strict laws.

About North Wales, PA

One of three historic population centers comprising the North Penn Valley region, today the community of North Wales includes many areas outside its official boundaries located in adjacent townships and unincorporated communities.

Frequently Asked Questions about Child Pornography in North Wales, PA

FAQ: How can I be charged with distributing child pornography if I only downloaded files?

You may not realize that the software you used to download files also shares those same files (potentially along with other files on your computer) with other people on the internet. Even if you had no intention of distributing files, you can still be held criminally liable when the software you use makes those files available for download by other persons.

FAQ: If I am convicted of child pornography charges will I have to register as a sex offender?

Most likely. Most criminal charges related to child pornography are offenses that will require a convicted individual to register as a sex offender following the completion of their incarceration. Many of these offenses also carry lifetime registration requirements. In addition, you may be required to undergo an evaluation to determine whether you should be designated as a sexually violent predator, which carries more strict registration and monitoring requirements and can restrict where you live and what kinds of jobs you can hold.
