Child Pornography Real Representation for Real People

Accused of Possession or Distribution of Child Pornography in Denton County? Our Lawyers can Help

If you are accused of pornography involving children, then you need to hire a professional and experienced Denton sex crime attorney to stand in your defense.

Being charged with possessing, distributing, or producing child pornography is a terrifying experience. Not only is the idea revolting, but if the public finds out, you are likely to receive threats, vandalism, and be shunned and humiliated by nearly everyone. Child sex offenses are among the most serious crimes, and not only are the punishments steep, but with the prevalence of gossip and uninformed opinions on social media, your name, face, and contact information are likely to get plastered all over the internet before any evidence has been presented.

Law enforcement can easily track suspicious internet activity, in order to find the location of the device the pornography was viewed on or distributed from – allowing a warrant to be issued. Since public outrage is eminent, people accused of these crimes are treated as “guilty until proven innocent”, because the prosecution does not want to be perceived as being soft on the defendant.

Child pornography cases are obviously very sensitive, and will require an attorney with the expertise and experience to stand for you in the court – since no one else will. Our attorneys at Marsala Law Group have the knowledge of how law enforcement investigates such cases, and we are aware of how they will look for anything which may support their belief that you are guilty. One of the things we do is to look for any procedural lapses, in which evidence was either obtained illegally, or look for the possible “tampering of evidence”, where evidence may be made to look worse than it really is, with intent to get a conviction. Law enforcement often makes mistakes as well, so our attorneys will do a thorough investigation and analysis in order to provide the best defense possible.

Or attorneys have experience in defending cases of:

  • Possessing child pornography
  • Distributing or promoting child pornography
  • Receiving child pornography
  • Possession of obscene materials involving children
  • And the charge of solicitation of a minor online

There are 4 phases of a child pornography investigation:

  • Phase 1: Investigation
    • The investigation usually stars with an officer finding the source of the pornography for download. They then download the materials, and run a search for the IP connected to the source of the file(s). The ISP (internet service provider is then contacted and a subpoena is issued for the account holder of the particular address.
  • Phase 2: Search & Seizure
    • Once the owner of the material is found, law enforcement will obtain a warrant to search the premises, looking for any materials or devices which may contain incriminating evidence, such as:
      • Laptops
      • Notes or spirals
      • Photo albums
      • Phones or other mobile devices
      • Cameras
      • Memory devices (USB, memory cards, external hard drives, disks, CD’s, etc.)
      • Film canisters
    • Each item is carefully searched for evidence of child pornography. If anything is found, an arrest warrant can be issued. An arrest can also be made without a warrant if any child pornography is found and the suspect admits to owning it.
  • Phase 3: Charges
    • After the arrest, they may be able to obtain a bond, depending on the type of court (state or federal). If the case is held in a state court, then a bond can be obtained. But if the case is handled by a federal court, then the defendant is not eligible for bail. The detainment is usually determined by a careful consideration of several factors:
      • The severity of the material
      • The quantity of material
      • If the material was possessed or distributed
      • The sexual history of the defendant (is there any evidence of sexual depravity or deviance)
  • Phase 4: Defense
    • A criminal defense lawyer is either hired by the defendant or appointed by the court. The lawyer then begins by building a strategic defense.
    • If convicted, the defendant will face:
      • steep fines
      • court fees
      • possible eligibility for probation
      • counseling
      • sex offender registration
      • prison time
