Coxwell & Associates Child Procurement


Fewer charges can be more difficult to overcome than those involving children. Child procurement charges are nothing to take lightly. If convicted, you could be facing decades in prison, hefty fines, registration as a sex offender and the lifelong stigma that accompanies this type of charge. Many cases involving child procurement in Jackson will also involve additional charges. Since most child procurements happen in combination with another type of crime, such as child pornography, it’s important to have an experienced lawyer on your side. Cases involving multiple felony charges with children can land you in prison for decades.

What is Child Procurement?

Basically, child procurement involves the taking, stealing, kidnapping, luring or meeting with a minor with the intent or purpose of engaging in illegal activities. Most commonly, child procurement involves meeting with or taking a child for the purpose of sexual relations. All situations are different though, and a variety of factors could impact your particular case. Speaking with an experienced criminal defense attorney needs to be your top priority if you’ve been arrested and charged with child procurement. Listed below are a few different types of child procurement.

Different Types of Child Procurement

  • Procuring a child for pornographic purposes
  • Procuring a child rape or sexual abuse
  • Kidnapping a child to imprison him or her
  • Stealing a child for servitude or slave purposes
  • Procuring children for black market adoptions
  • Child procurement with intent to cross state lines

Procurement for Child Pornography

One of the most common types of child procurement cases involves the taking of a child for pornographic purposes. This means the child was taken, lured, met, arranged custody of or stolen for the express purpose of filming or producing some type of pornographic material. In addition to child procurement charges, you could also be facing a hefty list of charges including child pornography.

Procurement for Sexual Abuse

Another common charge included with child procurement is some type of child sexual abuse. This includes child molestation, statutory rape, lewdness, rape, child sexual abuse or a variety of other potential charges. Cases involving child molestation or rape can quickly escalate the level of penalties or prison time you’re facing, so the sooner you talk to a lawyer, the better. In addition to prison time and extensive fines, you could also be facing a lifetime of registry on the sex offender list.

Additional Charges in a Child Procurement Case

  • Child pornography
  • Statutory rape
  • Child molestation
  • Child abuse
  • Kidnapping
  • Prostitution
  • Human trafficking
  • Lewdness

Elements That Can Impact Your Case

There are a variety of elements that can have a direct impact on the seriousness and the outcome of your case. When you speak with your attorney, it will be absolutely essential to make sure all pertinent details are brought to his or her attention. Details like the age of the child or whether or not an injury resulted from the alleged child procurement can both greatly impact the outcome of your case. Additionally, the presence of third party, such as a parent or caregiver in the commission of the alleged crime can also have an impact on your case. Speaking with a lawyer needs to be your number one priority after this type of arrest.
