Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

It’s summertime in South Florida; children are outside in playgrounds parks, swimming pools, and the beach. It is also the time of year when child pornography and sex crimes charges ratchet up because of worried and protective parents. At Patrick R. McKamey Law, we know that it can be scary facing child pornography charges, whether you’ve committed the crime or not. We know that facing the law is overwhelming, and not something that you should ever do without proper representation. Federal child pornography or sexual exploitation charges are incredibly serious, frightening, and can be difficult to defend. Patrick McKamey has decades of combined experience in successfully representing people who are accused of child pornography. 

 

When you’re accused of such a serious crime, you do have a few things to be frightened about. The sexual exploitation of children is a separate crime under federal law, which covers the production of child pornography. As with other federal law, a child is considered a minor, which means anyone under the age of 18. Any person who attempts to induce, persuade or entice a child to engage in a sexual act for the purpose of making a video, picture, or other image is guilty of sexual exploitation under federal law. A person who is convicted of distributing or receiving child pornography faces a 5 to 20-year prison sentence and the sentences can be dramatically increased for a person with a prior conviction. There are also fines and restitution payments often required to any identifiable victim and family of the offense. Being convicted of a child pornography offense in federal court will also require you to be registered as a sex offender.

The constitution in the United States says that every individual has the right to defend “himself” or “herself “ using a fair trial. With The Law Office of Patrick R. McKamey at you
