Internet Child Porn

Crimes against children bring harsh reactions. But if you are accused of internet child pornography, you can expect harsh penalties upon conviction.

This is why you will want to hire a criminal defense attorney who is well-versed in internet child porn laws in New Hampshire _ at both the state and federal levels. That person is Michael Anzalone. He will be your best asset as your case heads to court.

This is a vile crime and if you should know from the outset that law enforcement officers, judges and prosecutors take hard lines on people they suspect of using child porn on the internet. You will need to work with your lawyer to build a strong defense case.

What is Child Porn?

This is the use of any images of children _ whether they are still photos of video or a mixture of both _ either on the internet for your personal use or by sending it to other people.

In New Hampshire, officials are aggressive in prosecution of people charged with internet child porn. They build strong cases and the penalties can land you in prison for years to come. In addition, once you are released from prison, you will likely be required to register as a child sex offender with the state of New Hampshire. This is so officials can track your location and you will be restricted from being around children.

There is a task force that is charged with going after child porn offenders. This is called the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and it actively investigates cases in which there is evidence of child porn violations.

For example, in 2016, a Salem, New Hampshire man was sentenced to three years in prison on child porn charges and fined $5,000. He also had his computers seized by federal officials.

He was arrested after the task force started an investigation into an online bulletin board that was being used to share child pornography. In this case, the bulletin board required installation of computer software to access it on the Dark Web.

As part of this man’s conviction, he will be barred from using the internet once he’s released from prison.

This is a good example of how long-lasting the effects of this type of conviction can be. In many cases these are life-altering situations. Many times, people lose relationships and jobs once they’ve been arrested on child porn charges. This is a crime that carries a serious stigma.

A judge can also require you to undergo serious rehabilitation programs and to continue to check in with probation officers for years. As stated above, by registering as a child sex offender, you will also be restricted in where you can live. For example, you can’t live near a school because you are essentially cut off from being around children. Your life will be monitored that closely. If you move, you’ll have to let officials know and approve of the new location.
