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.

Thanks Mark, for helping us with this important issue, which made a great difference in our lives!”

    “One to describe Mark's representation was AWESOME! Being a first time offender for driving while under a suspended drivers license Mark gave me more than enough assurance that everything was going to be okay. I was so nervous about going to court. When I reached the court room Mark had already settled everything with the states attorney office. Having my case dismissed! I am truly impressed by Mark's professionalism. He was very knowledgeable also educated me throughout the entire process. I am so thankful Mark represented me. He showed me why it is important to have a lawyer represent you. When you could be facing some maximum penalties including jail time. I will be sure to spread his good work.”

  • YOU ROCK MARK!

    “I just wanted to thank you from the "bottom of my heart", you are an incredible, amazing person, and a powerfully skilled Attorney. Words can't even describe how important that outcome meant to me, I hope to go forward with my life, I realize, that would have NOT been possible, 🙏without God and your presence on that day. This whole situation has altered my life forever, my career as a RN and a future Psychologist, was all in your hands that day, and you wheeled it, you kept your word...as promised. You remained honest with me about my case...and that is priceless. "Some mistakes take on the form of eternity". I am a little tearful writing this, forgive me if I miss words. You where blessed by God, with a team of Attorneys that found you Mark, you are genuine, stay that way! I was gifted with reading people, in my journey through I came across some intense deceivers, especially, some that I even treat. I saw compassion during our eye to eye contact, and I knew I could trust you. I know you meet many, of unfavorable in character, but your gift to decipher is an attribute, one that becomes of you. My father loved this quote by Aristotle, he passed in 2005, I thought...it fits you. I shall pass on your name for years to come, even though this is one incident in my life that I would like to forget! Thank you again, and God Bless you and your family. Mark, you are building a responsible team of Attorneys, Keep up the great work! YOU ROCK MARK!”

  • "A TRUE WINNER!!!!!!"

    “Words cannot describe alone how Mark saved my life. Mark made me feel at ease and that everything would be ok. He was a constant professional. My advice to everyone is if Mark tells you to do something do it he knows what he is talking about. In court Mark worked magic everything was drooped and now I still have my job. Thank you so much Mark, you truly are a winner.”
