Protecting the Rights of the Accused

State and federal law enforcement agencies, the local D.A., and U.S. attorney’s office take charges related to child pornography seriously and will aggressively pursue convictions. In some cases, they are overzealous when obtaining evidence and end up violating the rights of the accused. You need a criminal defense attorney with the right knowledge and experience to protect your rights and help you navigate the criminal justice system.

Developing an Effective Strategy for Your Defense

We have effectively represented many clients against charges of child pornography and other sex crimes. Our child pornography attorneys in St. Louis start by evaluating the evidence against you and how that evidence was obtained. If we find evidence of entrapment or another violation of your rights, we can seek to suppress evidence.

Possible defense strategies for child pornography allegations include:

  • Unintentional possession of the material
  • Pornography put on the computer by another person
  • Installed by malware or a virus
  • Accidentally coming upon images while searching for or downloading something else

When law enforcement officials contact you or question you regarding a child pornography allegation, it is in your best interest to say nothing until you contact an attorney. Don’t make any statements or consent to any type of search without seeking legal advice to ensure that your rights are protected. We are available to answer your call at any time of the day or night.
