Child pornography has become a problem in recent years, but at the same time both state and federal law enforcement agencies are cracking down on it. It is a serious crime, whether a person has manufactured child pornography or downloaded it onto their computer.
Not every accusation of child pornography leads to a conviction. There are even instances when the charges are dropped early into the investigation due to a lack of evidence. However, there are occasions in which the early-discovered evidence isn't unfounded and results in the case proceeding. This can be a very difficult time for the accused, who will need the experience and hard work of a Minneapolis child pornography attorney.
Dealing With Child Pornography Charges
Child pornography charges can occur for a number of reasons. Perhaps someone says they saw pornographic images of children on your computer or in your possession. Maybe you have been accused by someone of manufacturing child porn. Perhaps someone emailed you images that you did not ask for.
No matter what the case is, your attorney at Meshbesher & Associates will examine all the details of your case, from how the search warrant was issued and executed, to whether or not your rights were violated in any capacity. We get to the bottom of important issues, such as whether or not a law enforcement officer posed as a child and entrapped you in a chat room. Perhaps you were not the only person using the computer, so it may be hard to tell who the viewer was or who saved child pornography to the computer. There are even viruses that can plant different types of pornography on a computer.
There are factors that can reduce your sentencing. Our goal is to cast doubt that you are guilty of the crime. A guilty verdict could ultimately lead to time in prison, as well as registration as a sex offender.
Constructing an Effective Defense
Once charged with child pornography, the process can take months while investigators work to bring evidence against you. When the evidence is overwhelming, there are certain factors that the judge will take into consideration when sentencing and, of course, you don’t want that sentence to be harsh.
Your Minneapolis child pornography defense lawyer will also be gathering evidence and doing research while investigators are gathering theirs. This involves consulting with experts, such as psychologists and other professionals who are relevant to creating a solid defense in your case. If you have a history of abuse, mental illness or addiction, these factors are presented in order to benefit you. Even if certain defense strategies are not enough to have the charges dropped, you may be able to have charges reduced. This is especially true if you do not have a criminal record or a previous sexual offense on your record.
