Milwaukee Possession of Child Pornography Lawyers

Under Wisconsin law, possession of child pornography, or any material that reveals a child’s sexual organs or is considered obscene, constitutes a Class D felony for persons over the age of 18 (under the age of 18 is a Class I felony). Materials can vary and might include photographs, video, and undeveloped film. As a conviction of possession of child pornography in Milwaukee can result in numerous life-changing penalties, the attorneys at Kohler Hart Powell, SC believe it is critical for anyone facing these charges to mount a strong and aggressive defense.

Penalties for Possession of Child Pornography

Wisconsin law handles child pornography possession convictions very seriously. Recently, penalties have altered somewhat, and current penalties for conviction of this crime (if a Class D felony) can include:

  • Registration as a sex offender
  • Fines up to $100,000
  • Up to 25 years in prison
  • Living restrictions / probation

Each of these penalties can change a person’s life and can make moving on extremely difficult. But with an experienced and strong defense, you might be able to avoid conviction.
