Orange County Sex Crimes Lawyer Defending Those Accused of Child Pornography
Getting caught possessing or distributing child pornography can result in severe penalties, such as:
- Substantial Fines
- Jail time

If you are convicted of a child pornography crime, your life will undoubtedly never be the same. You could be locked away for a lengthy time behind bars, lose your job and your respected status in your community. Your criminal record could limit you employment options in the future, and if you are mandated to register as a sex offender, you could find it difficult to find suitable housing.
Child porn charges are quite serious with very real and harsh consequences. In order to beat these charges, you must enlist the help of a sex crimes defense lawyer immediately. It is important to understand that federal investigators, the FBI and any law enforcement agencies that are involved in your case often have unlimited resources to pour into your case. You may have been under investigation for quite some time and not even known it. Unfortunately, detectives do not care whether you intentionally or accidentally visited a website displaying sexually explicit images of children, and even worse, every image found in your possession is a separate felony charge.
Law enforcement will stop at nothing to make sure the charges against you stick. That is why you must protect your legal rights. While you may think that working with police will help you out in the long run, this is a mistake. If you are under investigation, have been arrested or even charged with child pornography, you must contact a sex crimes lawyer as soon as possible.
