What Is Pandering Obscenity Involving A Minor?

Often times we receive frantic phone calls from potential clients, or their families, after a raid has just happened on their house – leading to their, or their loved one’s arrest on suspicion of pandering obscenity involving a minor.  The law defines it as:

(A) No person, with knowledge of the character of the material or performance involved, shall do any of the following:

(1) Create, reproduce, or publish any obscene material that has a minor as one of its participants or portrayed observers;

(2) Promote or advertise for sale or dissemination; sell, deliver, disseminate, display, exhibit, present, rent, or provide; or offer or agree to sell, deliver, disseminate, display, exhibit, present, rent, or provide, any obscene material that has a minor as one of its participants or portrayed observers;

(3) Create, direct, or produce an obscene performance that has a minor as one of its participants;

(4) Advertise or promote for presentation, present, or participate in presenting an obscene performance that has a minor as one of its participants;

(5) Buy, procure, possess, or control any obscene material, that has a minor as one of its participants;

(6) Bring or cause to be brought into this state any obscene material that has a minor as one of its participants or portrayed observers.

What does all of this mean?  It means that you, or your loved one, has been charged with child pornography offenses and needs immediate help and representation to avoid the possibilities of decades in prison – even on a first offense.
