Dissemination of Child Pornography

The crime of dissemination of child pornography is governed by Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 272 Section 29B.  In order for an individual to be convicted of dissemination of child pornography, the Commonwealth must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that:
  • The individual had lascivious intent
  • The individual disseminated visual material containing a representation or reproduction of any posture or exhibition in a state of nudity that involves the use of a child under the age of 18 OR represented sexual conduct that was participated or engaged in by a child under the age of 18
  • The individual had knowledge of the contents of the visual material
  • The individual intended to disseminate the material

An individual who commits the crime of dissemination of child pornography can be sentenced to a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in state prison with the possibility of up to 20 years or by a fine of between $10,000.00 and $50,000.00 or three times the monetary value of any economic gain that was received as a result of the dissemination of the child pornography.

I really appreciate your prompt and highly effective assistance on this matter. After six different OUI attorneys told me that there was no way to recall the warrant and dismiss the charges against me without me returning to Mass from California, you managed to accomplish what they said was impossible. Thanks again! Neil D., Boston, MA
