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.

Happy clients

  • Great representation

    “Mark made a very stressful circumstance a piece of cake. He accurately assessed my situation in our initial consult and what he predicted is exactly what happened ... Case dismissed. He was thorough, patient, knowledge, sincere and honest. While sitting in court i observed the behavior and demeanor of the other lawyers with their clients... No interaction or personal attention. I will recommend Mark anyone he can help. Very pleased”

  • 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.”

  • 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!”

  • Reseable and still the best.

    “Mr. Scheuerman was great. When we spoke over the phone and he made claims that he could get me this and that. Then when we got to court thats what he did and more. Not only can he keep his word but he was fair on the price of his service. Proving that the most expensive lawyer aren't the best. I am so glad i choose him to represent me.”
