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.

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • I felt very at ease with Mark representing me.

    “I am very pleased with the way in which Mark handled my case. I had a speeding ticket which was 29 miles over the speed limit. Mark was very prompt in returning my telephone call and explained what would happen once we got into court and also gave me very valuable information while at court and prior to going to court. I ended up receiving probation before judgment. My fine was reduced from $160 to $50 + $25.50 in court costs. I felt very at ease with Mark representing me and will definitely use him in the future. My family also wants his name and number for any future situations they may come across.”

  • Mark is the man!

    “Mark took care of all the heavy lifting of my speeding ticket. While going to school in Maryland, I attained a speeding ticket in a school zone. Soon after I moved back to my home state of New York, and lost the ticket during the move. Soon enough I was notified my license was going to be suspended in the state of New York as well as Maryland. Mark took care of the issue over the phone with me , went to court for me against a tough judge and the police officer had shown up. Mark got it to a probation before judgement and I actually got a refund on the fine I paid to the court! Mark is the man! If I ever have another traffic issue in the state of MD. (fingers crossed), Mark will be my first phone call!”
