Internet Sex Crimes / Possession of Child Pornography
Law enforcement has stepped up its efforts to catch people who are engaged in illegal activity online. This is especially true with the offense of possession of child pornography. In Wisconsin, possession of child pornography carries a mandatory minimum sentence of three years in prison for each count / image. Oftentimes, people who are prosecuted for possession of child pornography are not creating images or videos, but viewing them. While creating child pornography is generally considered more serious than viewing it alone, Wisconsin’s child pornography laws do not make any distinction between these types of offenses.
In their zeal to arrest and prosecute people for possession of child pornography, law enforcement officers often deploy aggressive police tactics such as executing search warrants in a military fashion and using heavy-handed interrogation techniques. Many times, this results in people being accused of possession of child pornography or admitting to possessing child pornography even though they had no idea that illegal images were downloaded on their computer, laptop, iPad, or cell phone.
