If you suspect that you are going to be investigated for child pornography, or if you have already been charged with such a crime, you need to get your legal team together as quickly as possible. With over 20 years of experience, I am who you want fighting in your corner for such a serious charge that can carry substantial consequences. I have the litigation skills, technical knowledge and keen insight necessary to challenge the prosecution's case and defend you in court.
Possessing Child Pornography
You can be charged with possession of child pornography in State or Federal court. The possible penalties are different and could be substantial depending on the extent of the alleged evidence. Often times these charges involve the use of the Internet or file sharing software. Sophisticated analysis of electronic devices including smartphones, tablets, computers and network equipment is usually required to determine whether there is a defense to these charges. Proper use of expert forensic review of the alleged evidence is necessary in these cases to determine the extent and strength of any alleged evidence against you. I know how to assemble a proper expert team to work on your side and find weaknesses in the prosecution's case.
Accessing Child Pornography
You can also be charged for viewing child pornography even if you don't actually possess it. These cases are also technincally complex. The prosecution will rely on Internet server logs as well as forensic analysis to establish which electronic device on which network accessed the material. It's important to determine whether security flaws may have opened your network or Wi-Fi to use by others without your knowledge. If someone uses your Wi-Fi to access illegal materials on the Internet, law enforcement will come after you. They won't stop to investigate whether you were hacked or had an open Internet connection. Again, it is vital that you employ an attorney with technical understanding of the issues related to these charges and who will enlist experts needed to defend the case.
