If you are accused of possessing, soliciting or distributing child pornography in the United States, you are facing severe consequences. Federal and state law is very unforgiving toward those convicted of these serious crimes. Furthermore, if you attempt to delete illegal material such as child pornography, in most cases you will not remove it from the ability of an experienced law enforcement officer or forensic computer examiner and the illegal material will generally be discoverable.
If you have been charged with possessing, soliciting or distributing child pornography, or are currently under investigation, it is strongly advisable to seek experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. Your life, your freedom and your reputation may depend on it. Furthermore, should you receive a conviction whether at the state or federal level, you will most likely be required to register as a "sex offender." This registration would have a long-lasting negative effect upon not only your ability to seek and retain employment but upon your general lifestyle as well.

Misconceptions About Child Pornography That Can Get You Into Big Trouble
Much of the child pornography downloaded on American computers comes from Eastern Europe or Asia, where viewing uploading or downloading certain images, videos, and even in some instances cartoons, may not be illegal. However, it is a crime to view, upload, download, or possess if such material contains or is considered child pornography in the United States, no matter where it comes from.
Furthermore, you can get into trouble by stumbling onto a website with malicious software. This means that the website will load images or content on your computer that store child pornography such as "pop ups," without your knowledge. Even those images may result in prosecution.
You must remember that with today's technology, these warnings would apply not only to computers but to the advanced net devices used by cell phones and even some televisions, DVD players and Blu-Ray devices as well.
