Transfer of Obscene Material to Minors Attorney
There are many laws regarding obscene material in the United States. You can face criminal charges for the creation, transportation, distribution, and even possession of obscene material, and the punishments are severe. If you or a loved one is involved in a case involving obscene material, it’s important to reach out to a skilled defense attorney early on in your case.

Understanding the Laws of Transfer of Obscene Material to Minors Cases
If you’re under investigation for transfer of obscene material to minors, you may feel frightened and overwhelmed. This is perfectly normal. There are ways for you to take charge of your future and lessen the stress that often accompanies a conviction. The first step is connecting with a knowledgeable attorney. After you’ve partnered with someone you can trust, you should take the time to learn about the charges you’re facing. Transfer of obscene material to minors is interesting, because the law is rather vague. It states that if you use the mail or any facility or means of interstate or foreign commerce to knowingly transfer obscene material to an individual under the age of 16 or attempt to do so, you can be charged with a crime. Basically, any form of transferring obscene material to minors is against the law.
Obscene material is another legal definition that often confuses clients. According to the law, material is considered “obscene” if it appeals to “prurient” interests, describes sexual conduct in an offensive way, and lacks any artistic, literary, political, or scientific value. As you can see, this definition is rather vague. That’s why having an attorney on your side can mean the difference between a conviction and clearing your name.
Penalties for a Transfer of Obscene Material Conviction
If you are found guilty of transferring obscene material to a minor in Michigan, you could face large fines, imprisonment for up to 10 years, or both. The penalty you receive largely depends on the details of your crime and your previous conviction history. If necessary, your lawyer will help you negotiate a favorable sentence or plea deal, protecting your future as the case proceeds to that stage.
