Enhanced Penalties

Las Vegas Child Pornography Attorney

In 1984 Congress authorized a commission to establish what are now known as the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.  Every federal judge follows these in imposing sentences.  The Guidelines set up a point system with defendant receiving a certain number of "levels."  A defendant receives levels based on the charge he or she is convicted of plus "enhancements" and "reductions" of levels based on aggravating and mitigating factors.    At sentencing the judge counts up the levels to determine whether to assign probation, impose mandatory jail time and if so for how long. 

If you are facing child porn charges with enhanced penalties, it is vital to have strong representation from an experienced Las Vegas child pornography lawyer.  Your choice of attorney will significantly affect whether you are convicted and enhanced penalties are imposed.

Enhanced Penalties in Child Porn Cases

In cases of possession of obscene material and possession of child porn there are a number of penalty enhancements.  There is a prepubescent enhancement for possessing images of children under the age of 12.  There is penetration enhancement for sexual relations with a child.  There is a quantity enhancement for possessing large quantities of images.  There are also enhancements for sending porn to minors in chat rooms to induce them to meet for sexual relations.  Distribution of images for pecuniary gain or other thing of value qualifies for enhancement.
