In Virginia, many people under the age of eighteen will get caught up in incidents and behavior that lead to an arrest. While a large proportion of these incidents do limited damage and can be chalked up to youthful indiscretions, others can lead to serious allegations of juvenile crimes with long-term consequences. Teens and their parents need to be fully aware of the differences between the juvenile law system and the adult legal system when charges are filed.

People who are convicted will also have to be registered in their particular area as a sex offender. In short, these issues are so significant that they do not simply go away once the penalties have been completed.

The penalties for this crime can result in serious consequences if there is a conviction.

Such is the case when a person is charged with any offense linked to child pornography. This is why the first thing that a person facing charges in conjunction to this issue should do is craft a strong legal defense.
