A: 1. Solicitation of a minor via computer: This can carry a potential sentence of 2 to 10 years in prison.

2. Displaying obscene material to a minor: Depending on the specific statute under which someone is charged, this can also lead to felony penalties.

3. Use of obscene matter with intent to solicit a minor: Again, the specific penalties can vary based on the exact statute, but it's likely to be a felony with potential multi-year imprisonment.

In addition to prison sentences, convictions might also result in fines, probation, mandatory registration as a sex offender, and other consequences. It's important to note that sentencing can be influenced by plea deals, the presence or absence of prior convictions, the age of the minor involved, and other factors. For personalized legal advice tailored to your unique circumstances, it's advisable to consult with an attorney.
