Penalties for the Selling or Buying of Children in Michigan
Title 18 U.S.C. Section 2251A states that it is illegal for any guardian or person with custody of a child to knowingly sell or transfer control of the child to someone who will use him or her in the creation of sexually explicit content or in any sexually explicit act. To be charged with this crime, the child must be a minor, under the age of 18. The minimum penalties for the selling or buying of children are imprisonment for at least 20 years and a fine, but depending on the details of the crime, the defendant could potentially face life imprisonment.
Besides harsh penalties, the defendant also faces a severely tarnished reputation. False accusations are extremely damaging, and must be aggressively fought against. After your case is wrapped up, you could find it difficult to secure employment or housing, both having a severely negative impact on your future. Don’t make the common mistake of assuming your innocence will be uncovered. If you’ve been accused, reach out to an attorney as soon as possible and start battling back.
