Iowa State and Federal Internet Pornography Defense Attorney
Internet Computer Crime, especially child pornography has been a major area of law enforcement now. Agents are in chat rooms to identify IP addresses of persons trading, and even downloading certain types of pornography, especially child pornography. Downloading prohibited photos and/or videos will usually result in a sentence range of at least 5 to 20 years in prison if charged and convicted in federal court. The number and types of photos or videos or other depictions, and whether there was actual photographing, selling, or "trading", or even posting on the internet are all significant factors. These factors detirmine whether charges will be filed at all. The less "serious" violations are prosecuted in state court, with the others resulting in federal indictment or complaints.
A conviction on any federal charge usually results in severe penalties, including time in prison much more severe than is seen in state court, but vigorous defense can make a large difference. On average, Federal defendants who are sentenced following a guilty verdict or plea serve approximately 85% of their time. Being convicted of such a charge obviously has a lasting life impact. Defend yourself against these possible consequences! Attorney Berger routinely handles Federal cases in all of the Federal Districts of Iowa including Drug Conspiracy cases, Internet pornography, and white collar crimes.
