Our criminal defense lawyer recently represented a client in the Briarcliff Manor Justice Court charged with numerous felony counts of possessing and promoting child pornography. The case alleged, among other things, the use of peer to peer software and networks to download and share the materials. The Westchester County detectives executed search warrants and seized a number of computers, hard drives and other personal electronic devices.

Under New York Penal Law 263.10 sharing and downloading child pornography is a Class D felony. Under New York Penal Law 263.11, possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child is a class E felony. If you are convicted of these offenses, your sentence may include up to 4 years in prison, a probation term of 10 years, and a fine. In addition, promoting or possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child is classified as a "registrable" offense. This means that if you are convicted you will be placed on sex offender registration list for at least 20 years.
