Your Best Defense Against Child Pornography Charges
Our firm has extensive experience trying cases in the state and federal courts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In fact, our attorneys have defended clients against possession and distribution of child pornography charges for more than 15 years. We also defend people charged with other internet sex crimes and child sex crimes. We will prepare a strong defense that exposes, highlights, and exploits any and all flaws in the prosecution's case.
We are very experienced at investigating and contesting in court the search warrant and the supporting documents. See our web pages regarding federal search seizure and warrant suppression issues. We are in court right now fighting these cases and have the motions to suppress the illegal searches upon which the cases are based.
At Hark and Hark, we understand the gravity of the situation and are wholly committed to safeguarding your freedom and your reputation. Through careful investigation we can uncover:
- How the police identified you as the possessor/recipient of child pornography
- If you knew that the video or photo in your possession was child pornography
- Whether you were unintentionally provided with child pornography through P2P file sharing (Kazaa, Limewire, Frostwire etc.)
- If the photos or videos in question are actually child pornography
Child Pornography Distribution and File Sharing
If you have downloaded a file sharing program — such as Limewire, Kazaa, FileHippo, or Shareaza — an outside "hacker" may be able to access your computer and download/transmit illegal pornographic images without your knowledge.
Prosecutors are not always inclined to accept this explanation, and will often pursue both possession and distribution charges. They consider the simple act of clicking a mouse to authorize downloading/file sharing from your computer to be an "intentional act of distribution."
Our extensive experience addressing and fighting search warrants, computer security, and evidentiary viability provides you with the best defense.
The punishments for sex crimes last a lifetime. For example, sex offender registration can greatly impact your life, including limiting where you can live and work.
Please review a recent article written by Richard Hark indicating the problems in sex offense cases that have a Megan's law registration requirement.
