Prepubescent Enhancement

Las Vegas Child Pornography Lawyer

Individuals charged for possession of child pornography in federal court face enhancement of penalties if the child is prepubescent or under the age of 12.  This can mean the difference between getting probation or a mandatory jail sentence.

At Okabe & Haushalter, we provide clients in the Las Vegas area with proven defense against child pornography charges and penalty enhancements.  Our attorneys are experienced in breaking through prejudice regarding these charges of this nature and persuading judges and juries to listen to our client's side of the story. We work tirelessly to achieve the best possible resolution of the case for our client.  If you or a loved one is charged with possession of child pornography, we urge you to contact a child pornography lawyer in Las Vegas.

Federal Sentencing Guidelines - Prepubescent Enhancement

In 1984 Congress established the United States Sentencing Commission to establish uniform sentencing guidelines for federal courts. The commission set up a system with various levels which determine the severity of the sentence.  Levels are established for each charge. There are enhancements and reductions of levels depending on the severity of the conduct.  For child pornography involving a prepubescent minor the enhancement is 2 levels. 

Child Pornography Attorney in Las Vegas - Defense Against Child Pornography Charges

When we accept a case, we conduct an independent investigation to find all evidence that will work in our client's favor.  As former prosecutors, our child pornography attorneys are able to spot the strengths and weaknesses of the government's case and how to attack it most effectively.  If the police search was illegal, we move to suppress the evidence.  If it the material was found in our client's computer, we check whether it is from another person's computer the client shares files with or even from a virus.

We often challenge the government to prove the image is of a real person and not computer-generated.  Where the age is not obvious we call on the government to prove the subject was prepubescent or even underage. We have a reputation for successful defense in child pornography cases with a record to back it up.

If you are facing child pornography charges with a prepubescent enhancement, contact a Las Vegas child pornography lawyer for vigorous defense.
