Illinois man charged with possession, distribution of child porn

Being charged with any sexual misconduct crime in Illinois can carry huge penalties ranging from fines to imprisonment. However, the most frustrating thing is that it can bring about damage to your reputation and personal and professional life. You might even find yourself on the sex offender registry, placing a stigma on you that will not easily go away. This will jeopardize not just your present, but also your future life, endangering your chances to turn over a new leaf and put everything behind you.

Take, for example, the case of a man from White County, Illinois, who has been accused of child pornography charges. After investigations showed that he had child pornography materials on his computer, he was charged with two counts of child pornography. The first charge was for child pornography production and the second count involved child pornography distribution.

The case had already been filed in the U.S. District Court and, if proven guilty, the man could face decades in prison. He may also be ordered to pay up to a $250,000 fine and be released under lifetime supervision.

If you find yourself charged with sex crimes this certainly does not mean that you are automatically guilty of them. There is also a possibility of false accusations, and you deserve the right to a fair criminal trial so that you can defend yourself against the charges. You can expect that there will be aggressive prosecution in your case. However, you can counter this with a solid criminal defense in order to protect your rights and your freedom.
