Anyone charged with possession, distribution or making child pornography is facing possibly the most serious legal fight of their lives. However, new develops in the criminal justice system could make any potential legal fight that much more difficult, increasing the need for a skilled Los Angeles Child Pornography Attorney.
Men and women accused of a child pornography charge face serious consequences, such as imprisonment, mandatory counseling, inclusion on the Sex Offender list and much more. New developments in the use of technology have made legal battles easier for the government and harder for the accused. New software has been developed by the Polytechnic Institute of New York University allows investigators to find photographs deleted from the user’s computer. Meaning that even if something is deleted and put into the “trash" a government sex crime evidence detective can still find old files.
While some may feel this is a good thing, it creates potentially dangerous situations for anyone who buys an old computer. For example, if someone downloads a file onto their computer that is child pornography and then sells the computer, the new owner could be charged with a criminal child pornography violation. It could be potentially impossible for anyone charged with child pornography violations to be found innocent if there are thousands of images on their computer, even if it was not their computer originally. In such cases, only a skilled Child Pornography Defense Lawyer will have the knowledge, experience and skill necessary to create the best defense possible.
Defending against the government’s accusations requires a lawyer with a unique understanding of the law. For example, for an image to be unlawful, the image must not be digitally created. The government must also prove that the accused was aware of what was on his or her computer. In the case of this new kind of digital investigation, it might be easy to prove a person had images on his or her computer, but impossible to prove if they knew it was there. However, without a skilled Attorney on your side, government scare tactics and heavy handed interrogation could get you to give up on your rights.
