Child pornography crimes in New Jersey are considered incredibly serious, and frequently draw federal as well as state charges. Under Endangering Welfare of Children (N.J.S.A. 2C:24-4), your best hope is to be charged with possession of child pornography, which can still put you in prison for 18 months.
Under the statute, prohibited conduct includes causing a child younger than 16 to engage in or simulate a variety of sexual acts for the purpose of filming or reproducing them, photographing or filming a child performing such an act, receiving such images for the purpose of selling or distributing, or simply possessing these, even in electronic form on your computer.
You can be sentenced to decades in prison if you’re found guilty of Endangering Welfare of Children. Get help right away. Call Matthew Reisig today at 732-625-9661 for a free consultation with an experienced New Jersey criminal defense lawyer.
