DuPage County Internet Porn Defense Attorneys

Protecting Clients from the Stigma of Child Sex Crimes

If you are arrested for possession of pornographic images of minors, people are often prepared to judge you before hearing all of the evidence. The stigma and public outrage associated with “kiddie porn” can result in damage to your reputation, family relationships and career before you have even had your day in court. If you are convicted of child pornography in Illinois, you will not only face a felony charge and state prison time but also registration as a sex offender. Our DuPage County internet pornography attorneys at Ramsell & Associates, LLC recognize the potentially devastating impact of allegations that you are involved in possessing or exchanging sexually explicit images of minors on the web, so we fiercely protect individuals facing such claims.

Understanding Illinois Internet Pornography Charges

Under 720 ILCS 5/11-20.1 child pornography is defined as materials that visually depict minors engaged in sexual activity, simulated sexual activity or other erotic behavior intended to arouse the viewer. Examples of materials that can result in an internet pornography charge include:

  • Selling or distributing child pornography via the web; 
  • Storing pornographic images on your computer’s hard drive;
  • Printing out hard copies of sexual images of minors;
  • Downloading or sending prohibited images via the internet;
  • Creating child pornography in videos, digital files or any other format; and
  • Soliciting or transmitting sexual photos with someone under 18 via text message ("sexting").

Any individual arrested by an Illinois law enforcement agency will face exposure to a Class 1 Felony conviction that carries a potential term of imprisonment of 4 to15 years. However, those accused of child pornography should seek immediate legal advice because certain factors can increase the severity of the punishment.
