Minnesota Child Pornography Defense Lawyer
Child pornography is a very serious criminal offense in Minnesota that carries with it life changing penalties. It is one that also receives a lot of attention from the media and it is prosecuted very aggressively due to the fact it is a sex crime that involves minors.

Aggressive State & Federal Defense
When child pornography is passed around the Internet, it can be prosecuted as a federal crime. This is very serious because the federal prosecution is very aggressive and will work hard to secure a conviction
Nonetheless, there are cases where the actual charge does not reflect the true nature of the crime or a person is falsely accused. Whatever the reason for the charge, your attorney will work to combat the following:
- Manufacturing of child pornography
- Possession of child pornography
- Distribution of child pornography
Whatever the charge or combination of charges, your attorney will advise you every step of the way so you receive the information that you need to make informed decisions and so you know you are not alone in your case.

The goal no matter what happened is to obtain the best possible result.
