Online child pornography may be on the rise in Tennessee

It seems like child pornography is everywhere these days. Our online culture with its smart phones and tablets may be leading the rise in cases but it's important for everyone to know that Tennessee takes these sex crimes seriously.

Many parents would be stunned to see what is on their child's cellphone. With a large percentage of underage children having pictures of themselves or others it can make for some uncomfortable and seemingly illegal situations. Parents need to make sure they are monitoring their children's phones, tablets and computers. An outpatient clinic out of Nashville General Hospital has reported that there has been a large spike in Tennessee child pornography recently. This can result in child pornography unexpectedly getting placed in the wrong hands and causing others to have their lives turned upside down.

As we discussed in a previous blog post, conviction of possession of child pornography brings serious consequences in Tennessee. The damage to reputation can linger for a lifetime. But there are also penal consequences which include prison time and high fines. If a person finds themselves being accused of possession of child pornography they may want to speak with a legal professional skilled in criminal defense. With minors having more access to technology and less parental oversight, these pictures may wind up in possession of an unsuspecting person. A criminal defense attorney can help the accused tell his side of the story. They can aggressively defend their client against these allegations.

Possession of child pornography is a serious crime in Tennessee. Advances in technology have made child pornography easier to create and send to people. Innocent people may find themselves facing accusations that are not true. It is important that people who are accused receive their time in court.
