Quantity Enhancement

Las Vegas Child Pornography Lawyer

Individuals charged with possession of child porn in federal court face enhanced penalties depending on the quantity of images found in their possession. If you or a loved one has been arrested on child porn charges, it is vital to obtain the most experienced and skilled attorney available for defense. Conviction with enhanced penalties can mean jail time, fines and mandatory registration as a sex offender.  You are urged to contact a child pornography lawyer in Las Vegas without delay.

Federal Guidelines

 Under Federal Sentencing Guidelines, "levels" are assigned for the commission of crimes with "enhancements" and "reductions" depending on mitigating and aggravating factors.  At sentencing these levels are added up.  The result determines whether defendant may receive probation or has to serve a mandatory sentence and for how long.

Enhancements for Quantity in Child Porn Cases

Under the guidelines, there are enhancements in child porn convictions depending on the quantity of images found.  These are:

  • 10 but less than 150 images: Increase by 2 levels
  • 150 but less than 300 images: Increase by 3 levels
  • 300 but less than 600 images: Increase by 4 levels
  • More than 600 images: Increase by 5 levels

The more levels assessed the stiffer the sentence the federal judge imposes.
