U.S. law uses the term “obscene matters” to refer to many different things that are considered by a majority to be “obscene, lewd, lascivious, or filthy.” The matter may take the form of a book, movie, pamphlet, image, letter, sound recording, electrical transcription, or any other similar thing. Essentially, “obscene matters” is a broad, catchall term used to cover many different things. The term may also refer to a drug, medicine, or article designed, adapted or intended for producing abortion or any other immoral use. Even materials advertising or providing information about such products are illegal. If you knowingly take or receive from a company, carrier, or interactive computer service that provides obscene matters, you could face criminal charges.
Penalties for the Importation or Transportation of Obscene Matters
Bringing obscene matters into the United States or any place that is subject to the United State’s jurisdiction is against the law. If you are found guilty, you could face severe punishments that may include a fine, imprisonment or both. If this is your first offense involving obscene matters, you will face no more than five years in prison. If you have been found guilty of the importation or transportation of obscene matters before, you could face up to 10 years in prison. Extensive time in prison not only puts your life on pause, but may also harm your reputation and make it difficult to obtain employment after. If you want a fair shot at avoiding the negative impacts of a guilty verdict, reach out to a lawyer early on in your case.
