You may be wondering what child procurement is. It can be defined legally in this way. It is the act of “intentional giving, transporting, providing, or making available or offering to give, transport, provide, or make available a child under the age of 16 for the purpose of any lewd or lascivious act.”It is a Broad Category but the Key is for Lewd and Lascivious Activity
If you have been accused of any kind of lewd act against a child under the age of 18 you will probably be in some big trouble. You’ll want to consult with lawyer Michael Anzalone about the specific circumstances of your case. He will want to see what police officers wrote in their report to determine exactly what kind of charges you will be facing and what the severity of those charges is.
While the charges may be complex, they basically mean an effort by an adult to participate in sexual conduct with a minor. It could also involve the obtaining of a child for the purpose of prostitution or for selling a child into sex slavery.
This is a serious crime. And if you are convicted, you could be facing serious consequences that could include jail or rehabilitation programs for sexual offenders.
If you are convicted, you could also be forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. This means that the state would keep track of where you live in an effort to make sure you never commit these kinds of acts against children again.
A child procurement charge can also be associated with your child sex offenses, including, but not limited to, child pornography, child molestation, statutory rape or even child abuse charges.
There are both federal and state level laws concerning child procurement, so your attorney will need to be able to work in both venues. Michael Anzalone is fully licensed to work in both federal and state level courts.
These are life-altering charges and if you are convicted you could be in for years in prison even for a first offense. As mentioned, a judge could also sentence you to rehabilitation and order you to pay numerous fines and fees.
You stand to lose your reputation, your job and your family if you are accused of child procurement. Again, these are serious charges and in New Hampshire, prosecutors and police take hard lines against people who violate children in any way.
