If you are facing a charge of child pornography, you are facing a serious state and/or federal charge that carries 4-20 years in prison and potentially tens of thousands of dollars in fines, as well as mandatory reporting on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.
On state charges, you could be charged with possession of child pornography which carries a sentence of up to 4 years in the state prison. If you are charged with Distributing Child Pornography, or promoting or financing child pornography, you could face up to 7 years in state prison. If you face a charge of Production of Child Pornography, you could face up to 20 years in state prison.
If your case is being charged as a federal case, even harsher penalties can apply.
