Child Pornography

The production, possession, distribution or selling of pornography involving a minor is illegal on both a state and federal level. The growth of the internet has made it easier than ever to possess child pornography both intentionally, and unintentionally through a virus, accidental download, or clicking on a bad link. With the ease of access increasing as the world becomes more connected through the internet, it is more important than ever to have a strong legal defense in the case of being charged with child pornography.

Having federal or state child pornography charges brought against you can be traumatic both in terms of the potential sentence and the judgment from society. From lengthy sentences to registering as a sex offender for life, the potential damage from child pornography accusations is truly life-changing and crippling.

While every child pornography case is different, there are strategies proven to make a difference. Computer forensics are often at the heart of the defense strategy. Using a computer forensics expert to carefully examine all the evidence law enforcement has confiscated–  hard drives, external hard drives, flash drives, or any other storage devices. By examining the different devices that stored the sexually explicit photos and videos of child pornography, we can know exactly what the prosecution has to work with. Once a thorough analysis of the evidence has been completed, we begin crafting a defense strategy tailor-made to your unique situation.

Unfortunately, in some cases a conviction is inevitable. That doesn’t mean that we stop fighting for you. In these instances, we prepare a mitigation defense, so that you can still receive the best possible result. Many child pornography charges come with mandatory minimums of 5, 10, and 20 years in prison depending on the specific charges. A great mitigation defense strategy can be the difference between a reasonable sentence or decades behind bars. We work to ensure that you receive the best outcome available.
