Aggressively Defending You Against Serious Consequences

Most child pornography charges are brought as a result of sting operations where police officers pose as people looking for illegal material. Increasingly, these operations take place online. The two most common child pornography charges are distribution and possession.

  • Distribution: This is a very serious charge. You can be charged with distribution if you allegedly shared child pornography with anyone else, even if you were not paid for it. If you are convicted, you are likely to receive significant jail time, and you will also be required to register as a sex offender for life under Megan’s Law.
  • Possession: Although the penalties for possession are less severe than those for distribution, it is still a serious charge that could result in jail and sex offender registration.

If you hire me to defend you against child pornography charges, I will immediately begin investigating whether the evidence against you was obtained through an illegal search and whether you have any valid defenses against the charges.

If you have been charged with child pornography possession or distribution, contact me now at 609-390-4600 to discuss what I can do to protect your rights and aggressively defend you against these serious accusations.
