Maryland Child Pornography Laws & Penalties

Child pornography is defined as visual materials that depict the sexual exploitation of minors in Maryland and federal law. While the state courts often preside over these matters, federal authorities could get involved if allegations include distributing child pornography in multiple states.

A conviction for possession of child pornography involving a minor under 16 years of age in Maryland can result in a maximum five-year prison sentence and a fine of up to $2,500 for a first offense. Distribution or production of child pornography can lead to a prison term of up to 10 years and fines no more than $25,000.

When it comes to federal charges, possession of child pornography is punishable by a maximum 10-year federal prison sentence. Distribution of child pornography carries a federal prison term of up to 20 years—with a minimum sentence of five years.

    “I was facing 13 violations of my probation. Mark put my mind at ease and just made me feel like it was going to be ok. He definitely put in the work before the court date so we almost knew what to expect. And he literally made it ALL go away. Thanks to Mark I can marry my Fiance without having anything hanging over my head, and we can make a fresh start in life!!! I cannot thank Mark enough, he gave me the freedom I needed. Mark will not do wrong by you, so hire him if you want a fighting chance.”

  • The best there is

    “Facing 4 charges against me, including DWI and DUI which if charged I would lose my job. Mark was excited from Day 1 that we have a great case and he is going to do what he can to make sure that we get the best outcome for me, he gave me very detailed instructions on how to help better my case so that we can be prepared in court. Long story short, we beat the case and it was a complete acquittal. Thank you for everything Mark, I recommend you to anybody.”
