Defense Against Charges Of Possessing And Soliciting Child Pornography

If you are accused of possessing, soliciting or distributing child pornography, you are facing severe consequences. The law is very unforgiving toward those convicted of these serious crimes. Furthermore, if you attempt to delete illegal material such as child pornography, in most cases you will not remove it from the ability of an experienced law enforcement officer or forensic computer examiner and the illegal material will generally be discoverable.

If you have been charged with possessing, soliciting or distributing child pornography, or are currently under investigation, it is strongly advisable to seek experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. Your life, your freedom and your reputation may depend on it. Furthermore, should you receive a conviction, you will be required to register as a “sex offender.” This registration would have a long-lasting negative effect upon not only your ability to seek and retain employment but upon your general lifestyle as well.

Misconceptions About Child Pornography That Can Get You Into Big Trouble

Much of the child pornography downloaded on American computers comes from Eastern Europe or Asia, where viewing, uploading or downloading certain images, videos, and, in some instances, cartoons may not be illegal. However, it is a crime to view, upload, download, or possess such material if it contains or is considered to contain child pornography in the United States, no matter where it comes from.

Furthermore, you can get into trouble by stumbling onto a website with malicious software. This means that the website will load images or content on your computer that store child pornography such as “pop ups,” without your knowledge. Even those images may result in prosecution.
