Texas Law & Child Porn Cases

Child pornography is defined as any media content depicting a minor in any way that might be considered sexually compromising or as being engaged in sexual conduct. The media can be any videotape, image, photo, digital picture, video, digital video, cell phone recording, image on a computer, hard drive, or online.

To be convicted of the offense Harris County prosecutors must prove that the defendant knowingly and intentionally possessed the visual material and knew that a minor was being depicted.

Criminal Penalties if Convicted

Possession of child pornography is a 3rd Degree Felony offense in the state of Texas. Persons convicted of the crime will face a prison sentence of 2-to-10 years with a fine of up to $10,000.00 and that dreaded sex offender registration requirement.

It’s also important to note that person charged and convicted of multiple counts of possession or distribution of child pornography will have to serve any prison sentence consecutively as opposed to concurrently. Consecutive sentencing can mean a prison sentence reaching into the hundreds of years for some defendants.

Fighting Back Against Child Pornography Charges

In order for prosecutors to gain a guilty conviction in the court of law them must prove two things beyond a reasonable doubt;

  • That the defendant was in constructive control of the pornography material depicting the child,
  • And that the defendant knew that the child was not of legal age.

As you can see, when a defendant is charged with possession of child pornography, and when that defendant has a qualified lawyer, the prosecutors have any but a slam-dunk case. Sometimes, simply fighting back and forcing prosecutors to prove their case can result in a charge reduction and even a case dismissal. If you’re facing criminal charges for being in possession of child pornography or distributing it, you’ll need legal representation.
