Child pornography charges are prosecuted in both federal and state courts. The charges filed in state court can also be prosecuted in juvenile court, district court or superior court. Attorney Richard Sweeney has handled some of the most high-profile child pornography cases in Massachusetts history. Our criminal defense attorneys serving Quincy and Boston have represented clients facing child pornography charges in juvenile, district, and superior courts throughout the Commonwealth.

Our defense strategy always takes into account whether the charges are brought in federal court, superior court, district court, or juvenile court. The sentence you face is very much dependent on which court your case is in. Our goal is always to resolve your case in a way that protects your reputation, family and future as much as possible. Sometimes this means going to trial, and other times, it means negotiating the best possible plea agreement to avoid mandatory minimum sentences and sex offender registration.

If you are under investigation, do not wait until you get arrested to consult an attorney. The sooner we get involved in your case, the better the outcome will be. If you have already been charged with a sex crime, call us today. At Sweeney & Associates, LLC, we are available 24/7, and we can offer you immediate representation. Call (617) 300-0212 for a free, confidential case consultation.
