2 men could face decades in prison on child pornography charges

People in Louisiana may find themselves charged with a wide range of crimes. While many of the statutes they may run afoul of are relatively common ones, some are extraordinary in the sense that they garner a lot of attention and negative publicity for people who are charged -- even if they end up being acquitted or convicted of a lesser crime. This is one aspect of criminal law where the perception is often more debilitating than the reality.

This is what two New Orleans men will be finding out for themselves. They have been arrested and charged with crimes involving the possession and distribution of child pornography. While a potential trial is some time away, the mere fact that they were charged -- and their names and photographs were released to the general public -- indicates that they may have a difficult time shaking the reputation that they now may have.

One man, who is 37, was charged on 16 counts: 15 for possessing pornography involving juveniles, and a single count of distributing pornography involving juveniles. A 25-year-old man was charged with four counts of the distribution charge.

The penalties for being convicted of such charges are steep. In Louisiana, each of the counts is subject to a 20-year term in prison. Being found guilty on 16 counts, for example, could effectively be a life sentence for someone who is convicted.

However, everyone has the right to a fair trial. The men will have their say in court if they want to answer to the charges against them.
