Child-Pornography

In Louisiana, it is illegal to produce, promote, advertise, distribute, possess, or possess with the intent to distribute pornography involving children under the age of 17. Even being accused of one of these offenses can be damaging, so you need an insightful Covington child pornography defense attorney on your side immediately. At The Law Office of Ernest J. Bauer, Jr., I use aggressive defense strategies and more than a decade of experience to defend your rights and your reputation against these and other serious sex crime allegations. I will stand by your side at all times, so that you always have a trusted advocate to turn to when you need it the most.

Child Pornography Laws In Louisiana

A first offense for possession, possession with intent to distribute, distribution of child porn can result in up to $50,000 in fines and between five and 20 years in prison. A first offense for promotion, advertisement or production of child porn will lead to up to $15,000 in fines and between 10 and 20 years in prison. In addition, you will be required to register as a sex offender for most, if not all, of your life.

Defense Strategies | Prevent Child Porn Charges From Ruining Your Life

To combat child pornography charges, I utilize many different strategies that aim to show that child porn was not involved or that police and prosecutors followed improper procedures that violated your constitutional rights. These strategies include:
  • Examining the validity of search warrant: If the search warrant was not valid, I may be able to suppress any evidence gathered under the improper warrant.
  • Questioning the validity of search and seizure procedures: Police must follow a specific set of procedures and protocols when conducting searches or seizing evidence. Any deviation from these procedures may lead to the exclusion of evidence gathered in the search.
  • Determining that a person is 17 or older: If it can be determined that those shown in photographs or videos are 17 years old or older, even if they look much younger, then charges may be dismissed.
  • Finding that possession was inadvertent: Those who are not computer savvy are especially susceptible to inadvertent possession.
These are just a few of the defenses that may be available in your case; I will use all available options as I try to keep child pornography allegations from ruining your life.
