Child Porn Conviction for Woman Attempting to Frame Husband

Child Porn Conviction for Woman Attempting to Frame Husband

Meri Woods was convicted of downloading child pornography (“child Porn”) in Indiana County, Pennsylvania. She tried to frame her husband by downloading the photographs of child porn. She downloaded 40 pictures of child porn on the home computer and then turned it into the police. She then told police that her husband was the one who downloaded child porn or child pornography. She was just recently convicted in Pennsylvania. Unbeknownst to her, the police were able to detect when the pictures were downloaded. The police discovered that the pictures were downloaded after her husband moved out of their home. Woods’s defense relied on the unreliably of the time stamps.

She was also convicted of one count of unsworn falsification to law enforcement. Woods could face up to nine years in prison for the two convictions. She could also be looking at a $20,000 fine. She will be sentenced on December 15, 2014.

Possession of Child pornography and distribution of Child Porn in Minnesota

Individuals convicted of possession of child porn or distribution of child pornography must register as a predatory offender. Prison time is also a likely outcome of a possession of distribution charge. If convicted of distributing child pornography, the sentence could be up to ten years in prison with a $20,000 fine. Consent and mistake of age is not a defense in Minnesota to a charge of distributing or possessing child porn. However, a valid defense could be that the individual was actually 18 years old or older. The consequences are serious and they will likely follow you for the rest of your life.
