Los Angeles Child Pornography Attorney
Child Pornography Lawyer in Los Angeles
Our criminal defense attorneys have noticed that law enforcement authorities at the local, state, and federal levels have been investing more and more resources in the investigation of internet crimes. California Penal Code Section 311.11 specifically makes illegal the possession of child pornography. This type of sex crime may be prosecuted by the government in either state or federal court. While pornography depicting adults is typically protected speech under the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, child pornography is considered to be illegal speech, and is not subject to constitutional protections.
Our criminal lawyers aggressively defend individuals on child pornography charges. With more than 50 years experience, our former senior Los Angeles prosecutors are well-aware of how the government builds its case. The government must prove the client was in actual possession of the images, and that the images were unlawful. To be unlawful, the images must not be digitally-created. Further, the government must prove the client was aware of what was on his or her computer. Through the use of expert forensic testimony, we work to raise reasonable doubt that about what the images actually depict, whether the client’s computer could have been hacked, or had a spy ware virus. Our Los Angeles criminal defense lawyers aggressively defend charges of child pornography, and have utilized the latest court ruling in California interpreting Penal Code Section 311.11. The ruling states that an individual who possesses multiple images of child pornography on a computer can only be convicted of one count of possessing such images. In other words, if the police recover a computer with multiple images from suspect’s home, the defendant can only be charged with one criminal violation.
